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

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
