A blunt knife may never kill anyone, but a blunt truth does!

Photo Credit:
It was half past midnight and I was looking at the photographic escapade of a pal of mine. One amongst them grabbed my attention. Nothing too exceptional about it, just another knife lying on the floor right!

A careful second look made me feel as if there is a story behind this inanimate object. Sometimes it’s just a way you look at things in life, which makes all the difference.

A blunt knife! What harm can it do to anyone after all? It’s just lying down there on the floor, lifeless, may be it feels useless to have one. 

Another look at the knife and I ask myself...  “How about if I was to personify the knife to truth?”  That’s when it all changes.  No one likes them, do we?

“Blunt truth”, seldom can we take it when truth hits us hard, hard where it hurts the most! I don’t claim to be a saint who has seen it all and can bear it all.

Yet another look at the photograph and I’m lost in thoughts again. At times even when it’s a blunt truth spoken, it’s kind of talking to deaf ears. People just shrug it off, is it their ignorance or sheer arrogance. Arrogance of not heeding to what you have to say.

But someday the bluntness in you words might awaken their asleep souls; it might just kill their fallacy that they are always perfect and sole crusaders of righteousness.

I take a last look at the picture and I sign off by saying... “A blunt knife may never kill anyone, but a blunt truth does!”

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

Words stringed together,
With more than a dash of emotion.

It all began with element of curiosity,
To unravel the unknown in each other.

Word for word were matched,
Unboxing the closet thoughts,
Like a flowing river, they exchanged thoughts unabashed.

Yet each held back some part of themselves,
It wasn't the end, but a beginning,
A beginning of a shadowed tale of mystic longing."
