The persistence of trust is always promising
in the loyal eyes of the one you love,
Selfless is their soul
in pouring the bounty of love
Thou overlooking their feeling
to know, you are not capable,
to understand what they feel for you
doesn’t shatter them enough
Moving ahead and pilling those
bricks of love, trust and affection,
they build a castle for you
so that you stay in comfort
still, we are so caught up with ourself
we ignore their tireless efforts,
and heap up mountain of our worries
without thinking, will they cope up?
Just a small request, do comment on who is that special person in your life who has selflessly poured love, affection and support, could be any one, parents, siblings, friends, your life partner, pet or some admirer. Would love to know from you guys!
There once was a king who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The king looked at all the pictures. But there were only two he really liked, and he had to choose between them.
One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for peaceful towering mountains all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.
The other picture had mountains, too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky, from which rain fell and in which lightning played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all.
But when the king looked closely, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest – in perfect peace.
Which picture do you think won the prize? The king chose the second picture. Do you know why?
“Because,” explained the king, “peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace.”
