THE INFAMOUS THREESOME

Tom, Dick and Sally
Went strutting down the alley

 

The sky was blue
On the green grasses were no drops of dew

 

“Look there,” said Tom pointing to his right
And the threesome burst forth laughing with all their might

 

For there stood a bunch of bullies
Pulling down the red pants of a teary-eyed Billy
(Isn’t red not a colour to be stitched into a pant?)

 

Thus strode ahead the threesome
Having fun a wholesome

 

Into the college gates they barged
Larry bowed before them removing his hat
(Ain’t freshers supposed to acknowledge seniors with humble obeisance?)

 

They were late for the lecture as usual
But they didn’t think it to be anything unusual

 

Out pulled Sally a Notice from the Outboard
Crushed and crumpled, it was tossed over her shoulder falling near the toilet door
(Ain’t rules meant for chicken-hearted morons?)

 

Sliding down the staircase railing,
They reached their classroom in the basement humming and whistling

 

The teacher’s disparagement
Wasn’t a reason to cause ‘em any discouragement
(Don’t classroom disciplines make robots out of men?)

 

Off they scooted to the campus canteen as the bell rang
To join the rest of their infamous gang

 

They grabbed the lunch plate from a hungry Bob
And ran away to their secret hub
(Isn’t is fun to eat off others’ money?)

 

Such and such their days passed by
Until their actions left them high and dry

 

Realization struck one fine day
When they were walking across the broadway

 

A repentant Dick resolved never to traverse his old paths again
Nodded Tom and Sally in affirmatory unison

 

If you meet them sometime now
Ask them what made them change and how

 

You’ll know then the secret of their transformation
That monumentally reset their lives’ foundation
(Isn’t life’s reformation a reason for celebration?)

It’s a big misconception that only like minds get along well – Try fixing two pieces of the puzzle with the exact same cut, will it work?
Complimenting and Completion
always works when there’s a hint of difference.

Many kings dreamt to conquer the whole world; none succeeded.
Dream to conquer just your inner tussles; you’ll discover paradise on conquest.

DREAMS: PANDORA’S BOX

 

Dreams… The word always ends on a soft sigh. Such a small word but the definition of it is endless. It opens our world to infinite possibilities. It springs hope eternal.

What an amazing feeling is that to know you can do anything you want to do. Be anything you want to be…

The world is your oyster, to live, love and conquer. But people have twisted it around, confused it with reality, put it on a pedestal and think it to be something that is out of reach.

We have confused aspiring for dreams with pursuing happiness. Because we have been told time and again to compromise, to adjust with our circumstances and though there is nothing wrong with that.

But that is a way to exist not live. And it’s because of all these voices around us or even within our head that we have stopped believing in ourselves. We have accepted the fact that we can only dream in a fitful state of sleep. But as it has been said, ‘A dream is something that keeps you awake.’ It is something that takes shape when you are conscious.

“I have a dream …” The most powerful lines ever spoken in the history of mankind. These lines they inspire me, because of the passion they were spoken with…spoken during a time of such distress.

wpid-wp-1443499695373.gifDo we not live in a better and evolved world today???  What is our worse circumstance? Reality?? Is that it? Think about it…

Who is stopping us to reach for our dreams?  Is it the world around or is it that feeble voice in the recesses of our mind that says “what if I fail?”

So I ask you today “Do you have a dream? ” If yes, then go get it because you can, don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. If no, then take a peek inside that Pandora’s Box, You will be pleasantly surprised!!
