Courage to choose kindness

She was afraid of this world,
Despite its beauty and wonders,
She thought of life as her salvation,
Or another one of her blunders,
Inherently, she knew that people are good,
And that life couldn’t be so tough,
But no matter how kind she chose to be,
For some, it just was never enough,
She beared no malice in her good heart,
And they said that she was being fake,
She had less friends but was friendly to all,
And suddenly her reputation was at stake,
It’s not that she didn’t make mistakes,
At least she wasn’t morally corrupt,
But the judgments that were thrown her way,
Often felt painful and abrubt,
Some lovely people in her life,
Showed her a path out of the blue,
They said,”You can be both kind and strong.
So, nobody can question the good in you”.
The most valuable lesson that she learnt,
From the memories that haunted her like ghosts,
Was that the unkind people are the ones, Sheen
Who usually need our help the most. (Nausheen Padha)



Childhood was free of any kind of worries,
Only happiness in everyone’s life, it guarantees.
Childhood was free from stress,
And now thoughts are even such, unable to express.
Childhood used to be independent of competition,
But now everything is just, success.
No one used to be one’s enemy,
Everyone even used to enjoy one’s own company.
Nothing much, anybody used to say,
Only positive thoughts they used to convey.
In childhood, anyone could become our friend,
But now, first, we need to impress.
Our Adult phase becomes a game,
Either considered as successful or failure,
But, childhood acts a protector.
A phase when when we used to speak whatever we want,
Far away from any kind of taunt.
Whereas, now we need to think of even a single sentence, 100 times, Seems as dangerous as crimes.
Childhood is a wonderful blessing,
A time always come in everyone’s life when they regret the loss of it.
