How easy it is for us to judge the other person? It doesnt even take one second for us to come to a conclusion. To label the other person right or wrong. All of us do that. But when we do the same mistakes or when its our turn to walk the same path, the protective mechanism in us starts working and we use all our strength to prove ourselves right. So here is a poetry that I wrote few days back. Its called “THE MONSTER”
So without trying to drag the post longer, I will present tye poetry to you.
I HATED THE MONSTER IN YOU UNTILL I DISCOVERED IT IN ME.
I JUDGED THE DARK SIDE OF YOU UNTILL I SAW THE REFLECTION OF IT IN ME.
JUDGE ME NOT FOR MY CHOICES YOU SAID WHEN YOU SERVED YOUR HEART AS IT WAS.
FOR YOU I WAS THAT SOMEONE YOU THOUGHT YOUR SECRETS WERE WELL KEPT WITH.
BUT I WAS NOT UNEMBELISHED ENOUGH TO DIFFERENTIATE YOU FROM YOUR PAST.
WALKING THE SAME PATH IN YOUR SHOES MADE ME REALISE HOW WRONG I WAS
FOR ROSES ARE NOT ALWAYS RED VIOLETS ARE NOT ALWAYS BLUE.
FOR LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS WHITE OR BLACK IT’S PAINTED WITH SHADES OF GREYS TOO.
FOR YOU ARE NOT ALWAYS JUST RIGHT OR WRONG,THERE IS A IN BETWEEN PHASE TOO.
EVERY SAINT HAS A DEVIL AND EVERY SINNER HAS INNOCENCE IN HIM TOO.
EVERY MONSTER HAS HIS SIDE OF THE STORY THAT THIS WORLD IS UNAWARE OF.
SORRY THAT I WAS NOT THE KEEPER OF YOURS YOU HAD TRUSTED YOUR EVERYTHING WITH.
BUT MY SIDE OF THE UNTOLD STORY MADE ME REALISE HOW PAINFUL IT WOULD HAVE BEEN.
TO BE LABELLED AS THE MONSTER AND TO HAVE NO ONE BY YOUR SIDE.
TO WAKE UP WITH THUNDER STORM AND TO SLEEP WITH GRIEF WITHIN.
FOR I REALISED HOW WRONG I WAS TO HATE THE MONSTER IN YOU UNTILL I DISCOVERED IT IN ME.
Thank you to all those who are spending there precious time to read this poetry of mins. Please let me know how you like it.
