Facades


Saying what your mind does not agree with
  Is what we often do to take a path less arduous
Doing what we would not like
  Is what we often are enmeshed with
In the world of facades, the reality is lost
 Only half-truths and lies are dished shamelessly most
Be childlike and innocent is taught most
  Least practised and pursued as we grow more
Sit back to  listen to beats of your heart
  A silent rhythm unchanged despite tearing apart
Hear the songs of nature, birds chirp, revel n bask
  Do any of these ever change to don any mask??

  1. What is taught is seldom practiced.
    You've taken to poetry rather seamlessly. Is it a new passion? I have tried but it just doesn't come to me.

    1. A big thanks Alka for that kind comment! I dabble in poetry once in a while, not too often:) You write the prose so good that it appears better than most poetry.

  2. So succinctly put! Very true that Nature never dons a mask or false facade. She doesn't need to. It is only humans who want to impress that they turn deceitful by creating facades.

  4. Nicely put Rahul.

    We're all putting up facades in the hope that we can do something for ourselves later in the day.

    Doesn't work the way we want it though, does it?

    Keep writing. Cheers,
