Abdul Wahab


Hypocrisy


Not once but twice
The same glass has been broken

On the same act
You react

Twice
In two different ways

Once you become very angry
Like ember

The other time you remain cool
Like frozen ice

You are under of a spell
Of a sense

That sense works
In you again

When a glass of milk
taken not once but twice

and not by the same child
but by two different children

again you react

once you abuse
the other time glad

a sense works
in you

let the later sense
posses you

and get it wings
let it fly all over

or spread
like insecticide

over the first reaction
and let it die like weeds

other wise
we fall short to be called human..

    You are right, but that is why we are called humans. We never know what the other person does. We can do just 2 things, otherwise choose between the two: Take it or leave it. If someone behaves with me like you say, I leave the person alone and ignore him/her. Anyway I found we cannot teach anybody for what we would like, that is why if someone do not behave as I would like, I leave him/her out of my life. (Report) Reply

    A man is a hypocrite only when he affects to take a delight in what he does not feel, not because he takes a perverse delight in opposite things............a brilliant write sir (Report) Reply

    It's better to react with anger. Once it is made open one can continue on. However when one gets silent the anger continues to build up and that is not good. At that pint it might be over. good write (Report) Reply
