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..

    Human race has lost its voice for the fear of being ridiculed. So the people should behave themselves. Correctly said. (Report) Reply

    A timely warning perhaps told well in a very, very thin wrapping of humour to ease the indignation. (Report) Reply

    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
