rumi # 1

You have been walking the ocean's edge,
holding up your robes to keep them dry,
You must dive naked under,
and deeper under, a thousand times deeper.

by Rumi.

illusion and pain

for many of us the choice is already made
the illusion hurts less,
the illusion is understandable, and justifiable,
the illusion is accepted,

the pain on the other hand,
it hurts and it hurts,
and it makes them mock at us,
and no one will understand,

but it is a choice made not for us but by us

You can live the illusion or you can live with the pain

not so young, still stupid #2

we crave the extraordinary
we spend our lives longing for it
and when do we realize that we have finally got it?

the days when we are ordinary, must then be real sour ones.
better not to think about them too much..

uncertain hope

there is no telling what might be waiting at work for us everyday
there is competition, 
the nasty politics,
the unfair pressure...
and the slim chance of doing something interesting

but still i drive to office feeling an uncertain hope
and boy am i glad for it !!

not so young, still stupid #1

the irritation
the fights
the pain
the totally unnecessary pain!!

nothing makes us more vulnerable
still we look for an excuse to live through it, 
rather we shun all common sense and go hunting for it,
and we are supposed to be the intelligent species. DAMN!!
