and one day…

21 Jun

They asked him to use lots of brain,
and forget the joy and the pain.
he listened to all they say,
lost in the book,followed their way.

Reasoning became his source of joy,
he started to live by the side of why,
used all his brain but the heart he forgot
learned all ‘whys’, but ‘why nots’ he forgot!

years later, the pain finally paid,
this should have made him glad.
but it didn’t.This had him surprised,
and one day, he did realize-

successful- he might be, but lonely he was.

    You capture a bit of the difference in viewing life ‘logically’ vs. ’emotionally’ (including passion in your thinking) well…thanks for the post.

      Thanks… I am totally new to writing. So each of your words matters. Especially since they come out of no obligation.

        Actually there is a ‘like’ button at top. But I guess, you will see only if you are logged in.

    sometimes i doubt on the two extreme edges which is nothing else but merely a perception sometimes our n sometimes imposed by others in the name of rationality,logics n reasons….

      I write when I feel like. I will try to be more frequent.

      >>sometimes i doubt on the two extreme edges which is nothing else but merely a perception

      Actuall it is, I think. there is just a small ‘discontinuity’ which separates the extremes.
