Don't Be


Don't be fragile
People won't handle you with care
Unapologetically they will break you
Beyond any repair

Don't be mellow
They will take advantage of you
Will place you on sidelines
Once they are done and through

Don't be naive
Life isn't a fairy tale with a happy end
Most are playing a trick
Disguised as your friend

Don't be this or that
What would you be then?
Lost in oblivion, shapeless
Listless in crowd yet again

Be a child
Care for your own good
Be fragile, mellow, naive
And do what you should

Be as free as wind
Flow as if no stone can turn your path
A spark that lights a fire
Be a child at heart

  14. Be a child
    Care for your own good
    Be fragile, mellow, naive
    And do what you should
    important life lessons in well easy words . These should be the qualities of a human being but most of the people treat him/ her as a foolish, who have these qualities.

  17. That is wonderful. Delightful bag of prose, with each sentence expressing a tune of itself.

    Don't be naive
    Life isn't a fairy tale with a happy end
    Most are playing a trick
    Disguised as your friend.

    Amazing, poetry fills a lifetime void of emotions.

  29. Love this. Too often we react in the same manner and others. We don't realise that these reactions over a period of time change us. Slowly this acquired behaviour becomes are defacto behaviour. A gentle breeze doesn't get into an enclosed space. I want to be as I am. Give me some rain...give me some sunshine...I want to be a child again....

    1. That would be perfect - being what we are. Having a childlike nature, makes sure we don't get affected by the madness around.
