Turn Away.


Being a hard nut to crack
he goes turn-away-from-me-john-phelanon his way
living as he wishes
not tagging with anyone
away from society absolutely
very much away from habitation.

Well, the cause might be great
it should have a validity
as it is difficult to get on so
The reason might look trivial to others
but to him it has tremendous impact
granting a bitterness and a distaste.

He has had his trials in life
He got injured and hurt.
he was taunted and mocked
subjected to derision and defamation
leading him to retreat into forlorn
living all by himself in a cocoon.

A tooth for a tooth striking at once
and an eye for an eye dreading all through
has been not his way of life all along.
Shunning them from vision totally
and not seeing them anywhere anymore
gives comfort and solace to the injured soul.

    It is easy to guess the apparent cause of the persons behavior and even sympathize. But the big question that can arise is why should we make our “present” miserable because of the past. Also one can regain his/her innate strength by believing that the Soul is Divine and unchangeable and so can never be hurt.

    Thank you for a beautiful post 🙂
