A Lesson or two! 

I tried conquering you with Love,
You conquered me with Pain and Sorrow,
I tried conquering with Indifference,
You conquered me with Pain and Sorrow,
I tried Anger,
You didn't change weapons,
I settled for Hate,
Why are you still with the same???
I am Am I to be a perpetual loser??
In a war, you need to fight
With equals...
May be you need a lesson or two....

The question that I am trying to answer is "Is there anything called Fairness??"..If so, who had defined it??..What is fair to someone might not be fair to me and what I think is fariness might be worst form of injustice to someone else...
To take an example..Someone had logged into my email a/c and deleted some mails(I had already written about it)...He/She wouldn't have done it had it not been fair to him/her..but it was not fair to me...So now who would tell what is fairness..
BTW, that "All is Fair in Love and War" is a statement of Cowards unable to face the truth. Thats my humble opinion.I dont expect anyone to share it.

A lot of things are like that. Undefinable.
Maybe its cowardly. But thats the way life is.
Cheer Up!

This whole point escapes me..people take what suites them to be fair and say in right earnest that "Thats how the world is"...let me ask you sir/madam, what makes you think you are different and aloof from the world...if the world is so, why do you want to be so...arent you not cheating yourselves..
I dont think anything is undefinable...they are chosen to be ignorant of the definition...a self cheating mechanism of helpless self-pity that make you wonder that you are drifing along with the world...to an unknown destiny though not willing, yet powerless to stop it, rather afraid to face the unknown alone...a typical kumbhaloda govinda( if u cant understand tamil..that translates to..mob mentality, in decent terms)type.
Well, thats what many choose to be now-a-days...so afraid of themselves and their acceptance by the outer world...
But I think things are getting way off the tangent here...
and thanx for the wishes to cheer up...I would, definitely...

Yo mate!!...U there!!...*Winking eyes*...been there..felt it???...did that make you feel something...then I think the post had atleast 1 serious audience..purpose solved!! Thanx!!
I am not confused!!..I am helpless if you are confused!!..and I dont intend to confuse others!!..I had been plain simple...I was just saying that you yourselves define what is fair adn judge yourselves as being fair and blame all others telling that world is so...I am asking, even of the world is so, does it necessitate you being so...isnt it not cheating yourselves..??thats it to it?..Understood??..May be its you who need a lesson or two!!..I was jus kidding...

Whatever you understood from that or not, there is some truth in what you are trying to say, (or atleast to my understanding of what you are trying)..may be life is cowardly....I only hope it isnt anymore.

A Lesson or two!

I tried conquering all this while...
and conquering alone was in my mind...
Lest I realized,
there was a lesson for me as for you!
I tried conquering;
You were entangled and suffocated!
I tried surrendering in love;
and you were free to fall in it too...

Two things Krish, for choosing this post as my comment in your blog!

I like poems... and yours is beautiful.

Second, this reminds me of Swami Vivekananda's words...
Love is like water in your palm. When it is open and free, the water stays... when you try to close your palm and arrest it, it escapes through the first crack it finds!!

Talking about fairness, you are absolutely correct in defining that "Fairness is Relative"! What is fair to someone may not be that much fair to the other. Thats the beauty of His creation!

This was the time I first flew in the plane. I was silently admiring the beautiful panorama and suddenly something struck me. I saw all that was artificial were in straight lines... the fields, the rows of houses and any thing built by man. But the rivers, mountains, the terrain... everything that was natural had beautiful curves to it. Nothing was straight... And I realized a curve itself is made up of millions of straight lines! Thats the complexity that defines the beauty of nature!!

In His world, nothing is straight. A person's reaction to something at some point in time may be different from his reaction to the same thing at some other time... Well, I dont think it is apt to stamp someone saying "They are like this". They were like this given the situation. There was this quote that stuck to my mind... "When God himself doesnot judge a person before his death, who are we to judge?"

Just that we are put in different situations through out our life and how we handle them defines us! We just need to find better ways of handling each of them. Such things are simple to say, but definitely deserve a thought or two!

@DD: welcome to my blog!..Guess what!..U r the sort of reader that my blog had been waiting for an year now...ur appendage to my poem was what made me think...I had thought over the poem with the word "conquer" many times.I think that's how I felt when I did "that"- meaning feeling in Love....so didnt change the word..but I too had the doubt that conquer would lead to such thoughts..happy that it happened to u

Oh Swarna, Thanks for those encouraging lines! Hmmm... "Happy that it happened to u!!" well... I'm not sure what happened!! hehe ;-)

Conquer- not just the word, but the 'price' we set through our expectations for our love for others - is the core cause for our disappointments and sorrows! Anyway, thats the human nature, it's normal!

The divineness to give pure love, without expectations, demands much strength and maturity in us... that is when we conquer us and we are untouched no matter what! Just the awareness of this fact may give much comfort during troubled times though.
