Evolution

The evolution of a being

from the childhood’s reverie

to a grown up’s veracity

from the glimmer of the stars

to the blaze of the sun

from a small injury

to a large gaping wound

from an innocent vision

to a gruesome deed

from the world of truth

to the universe of tall tales

from a fresh water lake

to the ever salty ocean

from the protection of the nest

to the vast lonely sky

from a seed that is sown

to a pest infected plant

from the drop of nectar

to an urn of venom,

the evolution of an infant

to a grown up soul

tarnished by world

shaded by emotions

from the afternoon nap

to the insomniac nights

from the playful toys

to the killer weapons,

there is an evolution

a real evolution

of a spirit as he turns

from a joyful mirth

to an evil sneer in the end.

Our True Selves + Story of the Swamp Deer and Us

A different way of seeing yourself… Seeing yourself in a different light- it would definitely show you the inner-most feelings that you’re trying to hide even from yourself. You may not even identify the person you really are. And that is the path where we all fail in loving ourselves- the true ourselves.

I had heard a long time back,

In the days of childhood,

The story of a swamp deer,

Who adored his lovely antlers,

Sitting atop his head.

This was the personality of his,

He really really adored,

But couldn’t see his flexible legs,

Because they were ugly.

He had a false perception of himself,

Which just covered his beauty,

He could no more see his real power,

The power that his legs beheld.

Once going through the forest by the lake,

Admiring the shadow of his lovely antlers,

The swamp deer heard the loud call,

Of the vicious predator wolves.

The voice came from nearby,

And the deer knew this time is so wry,

He started to run away from the voice,

But till then the wolves had got his trail,

And now were now behind their prey.

The swamp deer started running away,

And soon it seemed he had lost the wolves,

All thanks to his long flexible legs,

That gave him the power of running so well.

The swamp deer took a deep breath of relief,

But still in order to save himself,

Made an incentive to hide in the long bushes.

As he entered the bushes, everything went loose,

For his beautiful antlers got stuck in the bushes.

He tried, struggled to get them free,

But there was nothing he could do.

All his struggles were in vain,

And all of a sudden again came the howl.

It seemed as if the prey has been found again,

The swamp deer tried to get himself free,

He struggled even more and more,

And now even cursed God for his beautiful antlers.

The rest of the story goes like as what you can imagine,

The legs at first saved the swamp deer,

But his beautiful antlers brought him death,

For he could not accept himself fully,

He couldn’t know his real power,

That resided in his legs.

Similar is the case of us all,

We get a perception, we love ourselves,

For the image we have of us in our minds,

But the powerful truth resides in our feelings,

Within us, hence, it is time for us to embrace “us”.

One Lovely Blog Award

Hello,

I have been nominated for “One Lovely Blog Award” by Portia who is a beautiful person and a wonderful blogger. It seems we have something in relation- I was her first real reader and hers was the first blog I started following on wordpress. It is cool, isn’t it?

Well, what are you waiting for? Go and visit her blog this very second and don’t forget to follow her. Right?

Well, the rules for this particular award are-

1. Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you.

2. Describe 7 things about yourself.

3. Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Here are the 7 things about me-

1. I’m more of a loner but still I feel lonely a lot many times.

2. I myself think that there is something wrong with my mind.

3. I have recently realized that I feel better when I’m sad than when I’m happy.

4. I really don’t know how to start a small talk with anyone.

5. I am a socially awkward person.

6. I have kept all my childhood toys in a safe closet away from the sight of my parents.

7. I’m quite a hopeless person because I get bored very easily and I even retreat my steps back all of a sudden when I’m on a path of doing something.

Since, I am not actively following many bloggers nowadays because of a little upheaval in my personal life. Here are the bloggers I would like to nominate for this very award-

1. http://worldlywinds.com/ but unfortunately, she is no longer accepting any awards.
