Death

Into a million pieces,
It wasn’t the mirror, shattered,
The soul of thy reflector,
Died a thousand deaths, unmattered,
With each glance,
A million more of her, unraveled,
The haven now lost,
Left her exposed, unsheltered.

Lost

My secret place, lost so soon

Happy I was, over the moon

Scared of my own happiness,

Couldn’t accept the naughtiness,

Destined I may be for all they see,

To sit curled up under the tree,

Burning within by the urge so strong,

Slowing shrinking to where I belong.

 

Farro.

Smile :)

I saw a light, shinning through,

Wandering in the forest blue,

Hiding from the hungry crew,

That set to soak all its sinew.

 

Mighty yet frail oh so,

Broken down yet you go,

Hoping for a sunny show,

Out with courage, again you roe.

 

Hold on tight for it will come,

Dancing on your beat of drum,

To take thee to the world of some,

For when you smile, it’s their rum.

 

Farro.

Lust or love?

Lust or love, how do you know?

Oh my heart, will you not blow?

A getaway, too good you show,

But dare you ever go so low?

A million questions for you though,

First of which, is your own glow,

Ye ever going to retort the bestow?

Or have the strength for all sorrow?

Brave be to let the love outgrow?

Lust or love, you should never know!

The Easier Way Out?

Sometimes we think that what we are doing is the difficult thing, but in reality, it is the coward’s way out. Leaving a messy situation seems like the right thing to do, but it is difficult to stay and fix the situation.

When we feel that we are not needed, not loved, not valued, what do we do? Do we take flight on the first thought or we fight the urge of flight. Can anyone really answer this question for anyone else? We find many advises on how we should leave the unhealthy relation and flee and on the contrary we find people telling us to fight for what is yours if you really believe it is yours. But who can really help us identify if it is what we really want? or is it unhealthy for us to stay in the relationship? When it is said that the loss of that person is greater who you loose from within yourself, is it really true, does it apply to real life or is it just for the books?

Recently I read that words, without power, is mere philosophy. When we say something to someone, we need to unleash the power, to our words, the power to make an impact on the other person’s heart. If we use words in our relationship but they do not have feelings or the worth, they are mere words and letters. They are nothing more than a handful of sand. Real words with meaning, make the impact, they leave mark on us and others like the joy of the first breeze of the spring time, but until then the wind between two people stays dry, flaky which is enough to crumble any relation into million pieces.

We take the easier way out when we do not want to make the effort of putting meaning into our words because we are unaware of the power of words. It can strengthen a relationship and it can break a relationship, all dependent upon the presence and absence of power in our words. But beware of the power you put in. Positive or negative! Do not take the easier way out, work for what is right! Fight for yourself at the least!

Come home M! A students plea for rescue..

Many a times we are so confident that we know our students inside out that we tend to overlook their signals..

Children ask for our love and attention in the most amazing and unusual ways.. We  look for little signs of help and attention seeking when we are first getting to know them but once we know them or we think that we know them we often tend to overlook those signs and then BOOM!! Our children react in the most unusual and unnatural ways.

These past days have got me thinking that we focus so much of our time and energy being teachers on curriculum that we forget our real role.. That is to love and nurture our children. To teach them life, to teach them to love life and how to make their lives happy. To teach them the value of people and moments and not the value of things and numbers. A recent incident shook me from within to rethink what I am doing. Am I fulfilling my responsibility as a teacher or am I just filling papers and checking boxes off of a to-do list. 

Every day I wake up to make a difference, to make an impact on a tiny heart that looks up to me for help. Every day I wake up to see my children make life decisions that are based on valuable life lessons and to see them choose life over materials. To see them choose happiness over wealth and fame. Sure I wish all my children all the success in the world but not at the cost of their happiness. I wish them happiness first then success. Content over money. I do not wake up to see my children fail at being happy. I do not wake up to see them feeling inferior of themselves and I certainly not wake up to see them choosing a wrong decision in life that will bring regret. I am there, I will be there, at every step of the way. I will stop them, I will convince them to choose right over wrong. I will not let them fail. I refuse to let them choose the wrong path, I refuse to let them compromise their happiness, their life.

I promise to be there M! I promise to look for your signals of help. I promise to not overlook. And I promise to certainly not let you do what you did that day!

Love,

Farro.
