Am in Riddle?


Half glass empty or
Half glass filled
One and same
But if I tell half glass empty
Am in riddle
Will you say negative thoughts for me?

A handsome guy on way
Only thrice I looked
I got eyes so I looked
Am in riddle?
Will you mistake me?

I did my job best
Impressed Boss
I love you
Not that boss in love.
My work impressed him a lot.
Am in riddle.
What will you think?

Usually frank way
May be understood or may not be.
Am again in riddle
What you think of me?

Here my thoughts are in riddle
Whether I should tell or not to tell openly
If I tell what will be reaction.
If not..
Yes Am in riddle
What you think I should do?

If I tell truth
With no proof
Am innocent.
Will my voice be heard to prove my innocence.
Am in riddle
Will my Lame voice be heard?

Am in riddle always in one way or the other way
Its just a daily dose for me
What to do..
I just come to confuse every one.
And to confuse self.
Am myself is a riddle..
Comes in riddles.
Leaves you in riddles.
Am I right?
Ha ha ha..

    state of mind to say or its the perception he wa of defining but obliviously full and empty got a difference...also we read and learn history where as we are unable to read to self- -a mystery that leads to riddle and life is not less than (Report) Reply
