VIPINS PUTHOORAN


Act well! ! !


Play your given role well in the act
As long as you're there on the stage:
Without trying to change the script,
That has been written long back
By the mighty hands of Destiny

    So true, my freind. I once read the analogy of bottles and dolphins.
    Destiny pushes each of us through the rough sea of life with so many high waves and deep lows in between them. The comparison I read somewhere said that some people are a bit like bottles on the waves, they are just swept up and down by each high and low that comes their way. Dolphins are different. They encounter the waves as well, but choose to swim trough them, under them or even jump over them. So true, we cannot change the stage, we cannot change the script but we can play the role with so much enthusiasm and creativity that we attract the most wonderful public, which will bring us perhaps to our next role in a morefantastic play still.
    Excellent and thought provokng poem, Vipins. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
