Morning Motivation.

The sun is one of the best teachers one can have in their lives.
The sunrays maybe obstructed by the clouds, but that doesn’t affect the brightness of the sun. It still remains the major source of life for the plants to grow, for humans to see in daylight, for the planets to be in a steady momentum. One realizes the importance of sunlight in the rainy season when the dark clouds surround us or in the winter season when the cold is unbearable.

Similarly, the value of a person isn’t lowered by the hard times they face. Instead, when they successfully get through the phase, their value increases. And, my friend, time changes. The good times go, but so do the bad times. Have faith in yourself. ūüôā

Hunger Games

The baker’s son walked out the door
with a burnt bun and a swollen cheek.
“Feed it to the dogs!
You useless thing.”
Yelled his mother after him.

Moments later the pain
was replaced by satisfaction
when the homeless girl ate
after a week of starvation.

Psycho.

“Painting the wall red, that’s all I recall of my pappy.” The traumatised patient told the therapist, holding back tears.

The therapist gave a stiff nod,
deciding against to tell him that it was his mother’s blood with which his wall was embellished.

Wisdom of the wings.

Watching the rest of
his friends fly,
seeded in him a feeling
of envy.

Out of shame, he built
walls around him.
Walls to isolate himself
from the unjust world.

When he finally gained the
confidence to live as a crawler,
he broke his walls.

Only to realize his confidence
brought in him a huge change.

The sad caterpillar was now
a mighty Butterfly.

Happy Puppy day!

‚Äč”I’m sorry, Moti. That’s all I’ve got today.”

‚ÄčShe said popping a biscuit packet in front of the dog.

‚ÄčThough the little Beggar’s plate was empty, she always made sure her dog’s wasnt.

PS- USA’s national Puppy day is on 23 March and I thought it’ll be a great time to write on everyone’s favorite puppies!

Donating happiness

“Sorry miss, your disease is infectious.
You cannot donate blood.”
The nurse at the blood donation camp told her.

“Beta, why did you cut
your waist long hair?”
Asks her mom, now that she’s home.
But she only smiles to herself,
thinking about the cancer patient she made happier.


Well, blood isn’t the only donation, is it?

Spreading Altruism

“You had an hour for the coverage of aftermath of the flood. Where is the tape?” Yelled his boss.

“There were people drowing, how–“

“Bring me the coverage!” The boss snapped.

Unyielding, he smiled at the boss’s acquisitiveness and returned to help the ones inneed.

Looking for humanity

“So students, this lesson has
taught us that a falling apple
made man discover Gravity.”
The teacher concluded, closing the textbook.

A student stood up and asked, “If a falling fruit can
make us discover gravity then why can’t the falling bombs
make us discover humanity?”
