Behave Yourself, Darling!


For the fear,
of being ridiculed,
questioned and insulted,
for the mistakes,
that have been committed,
a long time ago or
recently in ego or
the mistakes,
that will be committed,
in future,
Human race has lost its voice,
of warning others,
advising and guiding another,
in the name of culture and
self restricted posture.

Behave yourself, darling..

    Changing values due to modernisation, materialism...society and individuals has become isolated! I like the way so speak it out...even though alone in a valley! (Report) Reply

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
