“If” by Rudyard Kipling

Success.To rise higher is our innate desire and dream as humans. But it’s not that easy to reach there as smoothly as we think. Crossing the bridges of numerous challenges to pass the hurdles requires little extra; courage to hold on to true self, trust in our ability, confidence in our convictions, and a positive attitude. These will save us from swaying to others decisions and thus nurturing negative thoughts for the sake of acceptance. A clear picture of where we’re heading to and the guts to stand for what we deem right – when the entire world turns against you – will set you free. As the poem itself concludes, “Yours is the earth and everything that’s in it.”

“If” by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch – and – toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a man, my son!

How to know love from deceit

How to know love from deceit  
by William Blake

Love to faults is always blind
Always is to joy inclind
Lawless wingd & unconfind
And breaks all chains from every mind

Deceit to secresy confind
Lawful cautious & refind
To everything but interest blind
And forges fetters for the mindIMG_7117-7Two universally powerful traits love and lies have a strong grip on us. We never bother to distinguish it. If we look close into it, our lives are entangled in the clasp of these two seemingly strong miens.

Wise souls say, do everything out of love. Never let deceit to be anywhere around. We agree on that, but our actions say otherwise and often fail our conviction. Ever since the world fell under the grip of deception, the act of deceit deem nice and normal to us. Hence we manipulate deceit and reward our lives at the expense of others. It has the uncanny ability to make you an unwitting winner at first! As if like, deceit and thrive, repent tomorrow.

On the contrary, love conceals the fault and is always content. Love lightens up and eases everything; bends the rules, penetrates through and perfects everything. Never ending and far forgiving, love is the foremost thing to keep us sane and it’s relevant to foster it no matter the circumstances. Yet the world adores lies….But remember that the creation happened out of love. So love prevails!

A new dawn of hope!

Limited time
one chance
and one life to live.
Childhood to enjoy
youth to learn
and lay out plans gracefully
Adulthood to implement
and succeed
Seniorhood to enjoy
one more time
before the curtain falls!

Life is worth living

Do what makes you happy
Life is worth living
Don’t sweat yet
to make others happy
You’ll end up sloppy

Live in align
with the nature
Life will be blessed
And everything else
will be added to you!

Life is worth living

A slice of heaven

Behold the beauty!

A slice of heaven
the beautiful blue sky
and the carpeted lush green

Nice and normal!
Aligned in harmony
with everything!

Violets at the park

Met these pretty violets at the park
So darn friendly bunch
Though they were gazing at the sun
Took time to pose
Such a lovely pose
That made this humble soul so content…
