Keep life beautiful

The beauty of being true to yourself. That's real beauty.

Life is beautiful. It remains so when we are honest with ourselves and others. 'Do not lie' for a very good reason. It spoils your life, makes your conscience troubled. Whatever you build on lies will never be as beautiful as something not built on lies.

Life is innately beautiful. It remains so, it need not change. Do not force yourself to do anything you do not feel like doing. Sadly the world is built on the principle of contributability. Contributability - the ability to contribute. Hence you are forced to so things you do not feel like doing. To contribute.

Recognizing this fact may enable you to contribute just the right amount and at the right places and times for the maximum contribution. You cannot contribute what you do not have. So, get into a position where the job demands what you can give, not what you have made others believe that you can give. Again, this is why the age-old law makes sense: do not lie.

Keep life beautiful.

Cut Soul

So far away you seem
Forever out of grasp
Elusive you wish to remain
But why, I know not

Bleeding, I lay
To breathe, I struggled
Will I survive?, I gasped
Your words had cut my soul

Kindness, the soothing balm I hoped for
Understanding, the rarity I couldn't find
Common ground, that no one wished to have
One-of-a-kind, I knew we both were

Years of sadness
And pain
I thought had come to an end

The long wait was over
The pain was for a reason
My life suddenly had meaning
But it was not to be

Or is this the night's darkest hour
Before the elusive dawn
Of all that I'd promised myself
And will she show me her heart?
