“Comfort” Zone

Getting out of one’s comfort zone,

Trying out travelling alone,

Making decisions that are risk-prone,

Is no doubt difficult – like trying to live without a phone!

.

Often leads to breakdowns,

Often makes one look like a clown

And often makes one frown.

.

But then if one doesn’t live for these things,

They are just like a bird without wings.

Even if their day-to-day life doesn’t sting,

They miss out on life and all that it brings.

Think over Overthinking!

Thinking of shallow things too deeply

Yes, to stop overthinking about things isn’t easy

But then, you’ve got to keep yourself busy!

.

Play a game of carrom,

Or go study the structure of an atom.

Watch a movie

Or go do something goofy.

Read a book

Or go learn how to cook!

.

Why pretend when you’re not fine?

In front of those to whom you say, “You’re Mine.”

They are the ones who’d get you off of your tough times.

.

If you don’t come out and express,

If all you do to your thoughts and feelings is repress,

The mind would become a bubble of stress.

And when it’d burst, it would create a huge mess!

More Than You See

What you hear might not be the truth,

Just like the story of the fairy and your broken milk tooth.

Those who behave the sweetest,

Might just be acting in front of you, 

And could actually be the ones who are the most uncouth.

 

The person with whom you’d never fight,

Could end up being the one who’d give you a backbite.

Those who ALWAYS act helpful and kind,

Might have a hidden agenda on their mind.

 

If the unexpected often ends up happening,

Often hurting one’s feelings,

One wonders why hasn’t the word “unexpected” lost its meaning?
