A Girl With A Sword! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

He is staring at me..
Keep him away.
Oh! he is so disturbing.....
Throw him away.
Is he singing a love song for me...
Slap him.

I am not the teacher,
To take a stick,
And beat them all,
Whom I think are my students.
I cannot be a soldier,
And take sword,
And keep on hitting.
My entire day will go,
On fighting this way.
I will just find my self like a statue.
Standing with sword,
In one hand,
And who ever comes near me,
Just ready for an attack.

Just imagine the outcome.
Whole life you will stand like a statue with sword in hand.
Because seeing the shining sword, none will dare to come near you,
Even for friendship.

This is not the way.
Heard many comments in teens.
It's Ok, Many were funny too.
But don't react it,
Take it lightly,
This is ok till no vulgarity in it.

There are many thing,
If taken lightly,
It may go smoothly,
Else you take out,
Sandals and hit.
The person may catch your hand too,
Or if you slap,
The others may provoke,
And something worst it may land.
Be cautious, react only when required.
But if you find any seriousness
Elders to be intimated the earlier.
Change the timing,
Walk with friends.
As long as not harmful
Take lightly.

This applies to teens infatuations.
Or college days...
Immaturity can do wonders this way too.

React differently according to the different situations.
Take the things seriously if you sense something wrong.

This applies to all walks of life...

    Be cautious, react only when required.
    But if you find any seriousness
    Elders to be intimated the earlier.

    Any reaction should be proportionate to the situation. An excellent piece of advice for teens which I hope they shall imbibe. On reading this poem I am reminded of an ongoing malayalam movie 'Drishyam'. An excellent work. (Report) Reply

    When I shut my mouth and turn and walk away, it doesnt mean you've won, it simply means that you are not worth any more of my time. - sometimes Ignorance is bliss and Silence is Golden. Better not to react if things will turn worse. (Report) Reply

    we all have our chess board squares
    and in our places to be
    castles on ends the nights move three
    The kings are in rule
    but the queen, a most desirable piece
    don't mess with her, she is a temptess
    she contols all, all seek her favor
    for her love all belabor
    but in the end game
    after all is seemed to be doomed
    checkmate, let's play again (Report) Reply
