On life and its vagaries

Sunshine Award

with 16 comments

This is a poem I wrote a long time back in November and I would like to share it with the award that I have been recently presented by an inspired soul.  Jingle  She is very positive and is inspirational in what she does on the net.

Nothing is that critical

I do-

Think that

There are things

We can’t get out of-

Our poor little selfish minds

But that doesn’t matter in the least

Everyone is like that whether high or low

What matters is the way we deal with it

Whether we succumb to them or not

For if we fall before them, we are

No more the liege and lord  of

Our lives but are-

the prey. And

That is bad

And that’s when we fail in our short lives

Better not allow that-

To happen.

So  we  just

Stay  firm

Stay  cool

Stay calm

No- thing

Is        that


I nominate following nice people and their blogs for the award which  came to me through  Jingle . I think I should first nominate her for the award in gratitude.

Incidentally these are the rules to accept the award

  1. Dearest Sam,
    You truly deserved it.

    I am so touched that you remember me.
    Way COOL!

    I really like the poem NOTHING IS THAT CRITICAL.
    Kind of remind me of my daily mantra!
    I tend not to rush things and if I feel that it is not the right decision,
    I will wait, hopefully for some wisdom , before I have to make
    any decision. Weird right?
    But I find that I do make better decision that way.

    You have a wonderful day now.

    I will link back to you once I have written a tribute to you.
    I hope I will justify it , maybe with a Haiku?
