Too Bad

I speak my mind.

Don't like it?


Too bad.


I bear you my soul.

Don't like it?


Too bad.


I believe that all beings and 

life forms are all the same, 

and different, 

at the same time, 

and that we are slowly losing 

our connection to this concept 

as a species, and it is destroying us.

Don't like it?


Too bad.


I believe there is a sanctity 

that lies within each individual,

every animal,

every life form.

Don't like it?


Too bad.


Don't like my

style of self-expression?

My authenticity?

My 'attitude'?

My disgust with closed-minded people?

My honesty?

My truth?


It's just plain too bad.

I love yours, and I hope 

one day we can meet halfway.

"too bad"

the taijitu of disparity

as long as

we keep an inkling

the size of a

mustard seed

that there

will be another day,

there is hope

for change

and growth.


as even those who have

no knowledge of

the virtue of hope,

are but slaves to it

as long as

a single soul

on the face

of the Earth

believes in it's worth,

and that is what

he who hath no hope

despises most.

The balance within inequality.


What’s the word challenge all about?
Challenge can make your abilities sprout,

We fear to take up something new,
We want our systems same with changes few…

We want to stay in a life that has no risk involved,
We don’t want to move from our comfort zone at all,

A challenge that has to be taken,
Becomes unsuccessful as no motivation has been awakened!

Why not face a challenge in a situation?
The situation can be taken over by a determination,

We feel challenges block the flow of our livelihood,
But challenges check our abilities of what we can & what we could………

So take every challenge as a great opportunity you have got,
To turn it in your favor with a new radiance that life has taught!!!

Make every adversity an opportunity today,
Challenges will make you a renowned personality someday!!!
