The flat world (perceptions differ!) houses many kinds of people - the good, the bad, the ugly, the foxes, the lambs, the chickens, the lions and the likes. This post is about an issue many have always faced in life repeatedly....and the question that pops up right away in my mind is "Is it a crime to be innocent?"
Why are people being so manipulative in nature? What do they gain from leveraging on the naive innocence of a fellow being? The answers to these questions - is still being searched for.
I accept the fact that, smart quotient is prevalant to decide the survival of the fittest, be it in personal life or amidst corporate ettiquettes. But, i strongly feel that as you go through the different walks and phases of life meeting an ecclectic group of people the human mind which is very shrewd adapts by releasing complex hormones (unknown) to us. Surprisingly, the next time u interact in a situation, one tends to perform an action which might not be a part of the behavorial trend as well.
So, does this mean that innocent souls does not have a place to live in this world? Rather, i should suggest a seperate planet of these NAIVE beings which would obviate the need to go for wars, steal, earn and the list is endless.. The main reason of worlds locking horns together is becaus to establish supremacy. Just because, the opponent has a weak link in the chain of armours and attacking that point to prove a point of leadership does not nurture communal harmony. As, once hit, the defeated or hurted opponent might strike back like a recoiled snake....and who knows, it might hit you so bad that there is no chance of rising up again!! This situation would go on and on...talk about world peace when all that has to be targetted is the change in mindset of people!! Easily said and here, but i am aware how difficult it is to establish it.
"Survival of the fittest" : This is such a beautiful adage reflective among animals that roam cloaked in natures clothing and humans clothed in gucci and versace. One got to be smart and adaptive with situations, to be declared the supreme winner of all...but sadly, there is always a greater mind than you.
The point i would like to make here is, what do people derive from using anothers naive innocence?
1.) Do they get sinful pleasure?
2.) A hearty laughter behind the backs?
3.) A deep sleep because you are happy that you have outsmarted an innocent soul?
The torn sould does not realise that, he/she has been outsmarted...but the mind adapts and teaches you like a loving teacher (as always) about what should have been done in that situation...
Many of you might ask..so, why don't people change? hmm..to change for what? - To be a sharp nail that punctures innocence? Even if my mind adapts and teaches me how to adapt to such situations, i would still not try to manipulate fellow beings. Because i simply don't like it!!
Oh!! poor soul,
a perfect embodiment of body and mind
who decides the path you take?
yet the flat worldly beings moulds you to its wake
Acclimatize to it....you are proclaimed a smart soul
If you don't..sigh! many are a smarter soul than you
Happy and crisp...when you are light...
Sodden and sad...when you realize the put up fight
So many emotional waves...you undergo
Yet, you don't escape to be a free bargo
you stay within me....
teaching me.....goading me....but not leaving me..
Don't you ever wail when you meet soul-less beings
Soul: Yes...i do...silently in the darkest nook of my heart...
unknown to many...
but known to few....the only ones that matter to you
Don't you feel vengant on being used like a whore...
Soul: Yes..i do...anger pours out like hot lava...
but i stem it...
to protect you and make you a better person in life
Won't the world be a better place to live in?
Soul: Yes...my dear..it would...
only if you adapt to it...
to be blended among the eclectic mix
Courageous soul...i salute you with all my pride...!
