jvl narasimha rao

We are all subject to the inexorable laws of You

You give birth to the people and kill them

in many ways. You  unite and separate them

Make them love, hate and forget them one another

You make them smile and frown too


You will make somebody crown

and destroy the kingdoms, change

the roles and makes a child turn into a boy

A boy into an adult and adult into an old man

or woman and finally take the breath away.


In this vast universe everybody

should follow your dictates

You have no beginning or end

you create the problems and solve them too

we vainly try to measure you

we may succeed relatively

but never absolutely

    When do we start to take responsibility of what we do and create?
    I want to make a reflection on that, I think we need to grow up and make things better by taking consciousness and action on our joys and mistakes.

      Ah lala! Thank you VERY much for telling me! I appreciate it, seriously.

      Time is running out, at the point of the hourglass, often we are left with our thoughts or feelings, remembering that hate is a little fragmentation of love. if we love, care, respect. ourselves we will always be the masters of our own destiny.
