Prudence

Peace of mind is hard to find;
Prudence in dealing with your mind;
Let not negative thoughts inhabit;
And do not your talents inhibit;
Freely, always think;
Write your name in indelible ink;
Since this world is not our home,
Pen it for generations to come.

Inhabit

Never soil your hands

As you struggle to carve out a place for yourself in life, be very careful. There are many unscrupulous fellows who will lure you to soil your hands to get rich.

Always bear in mind that having ill-gotten wealth is worse than being poor.

You may know some people (and they are many) who soared to great heights in earthly power just to sink into the abyss of disgrace because they soiled their hands to gain their power.

Never fall into temptation to soil your hands and put your reputation in jeopardy because of money or any other earthly advantage.

SoilNever

Don’t fail before you start!

There are many people
Who fail
Before they start;
Ask me
How this is possible;
And I will tell you:
They think negatively;
They feel defeated;
They feel in adequate;
They don’t believe
In their own abilities;
They lack self-confidence;
Even before they start;
How can they win;
Whoever takes this path,
Fails before they start;
Therefore,
Don’t take this path;
Don’t fail before you start!

I love you America

I love you, America;
Though not American;
And don’t live in America;
I love you America for the beauty of your heart;
And the pillars on which you stand;
You stand on solid, lovely pillars;
Values that should never die;
You shine like a star
On the sky of nations;
Or should I say twinkle like a star in the sky?
You give light that brightens the world;
I don’t want anything to happen
To the light that you give;
For if anything blurs it,
Darkness may cover the world.
And I see signals that are worrisome;
Let someone reassure me!
That the America I admire will remain America;
After everything;
Shine on America!
Let the bright light you give never quench!
You have to let your light keep shining,
To remove darkness from the world;
I believe in you, America;
I trust you, America;
I love you, America;
Make no mistake!

Have faith in others

How much faith have you in others?
I have great faith in others;
You should have faith in others too;
But be careful as well;
Not everyone is good;
Not everyone is sincere;
Not everyone can be trusted;
Many look like they should be trusted
But cannot be trusted;
They are sweet outside
But bitter inside;
They shine outside;
But are dark inside;
Therefrom much evil comes in the world;
The world is good;
But also bad;
The world has good people;
But also bad people;
Have faith in others but be prudent
And have God as your shield.
The plans of the evil ones will never
Prevail on you,
With God on your side.

Think before you share

We live in a world where if someone actually wants to s/he can locate where we live and show up at our doorsteps without invitation.

IMG_0025 sharmishtha 17.2.16 sm (1)That is why we should be very cautious about the things we share in internet, social medias, as we all may know that once you post something in social media, it often stays there for years, even if you delete it, remove the post it may pop up from one place or other, so, before you post something that may affect you in future think at least fifty times.

We all go through bad patches, spat with family, tiff with co-workers, bad terms with employers but sharing them online may not be a good idea, if you want to vent out write a story and stamp it as a fiction and be careful not to use the actual name, you may of course give your characters enough resemblance but not too much to sue you when you become a millionaire!

After all, who can say that the person who hates you most is not following your blog? Your facebook page/profile and keeping copy of all your slips and mistakes to use them when the opportune moment comes!

To share your ravings against your ex when a new love is by your side, your anger against your ex co-workers after you have changed your job or your boss after you have made up with him/her?

People who said God put our tongue behind cage for a reason said it right. You should apply the same theory to your fingers too, because they do most of the talking.

Too dangerous

There is wicked ever present creature
Who goes by the name Devil;
I have seen him at work lots of times;
This evil fellow is always at work;
He never sleeps, never rests, never;
He is for ever causing harm;
Destroying what others are building;
He does not like good to prevail;
He enjoys evil;
And if you smile with Him,
You are gone;
He grips you and takes you captive;
He is to be shunned;
Stay off his path;
Too dangerous to be allowed near you.
