THE CAIN AND ABLE STREAK


Lum's space

When all men are brothers,
Why do we still want to dominate one another?
Is this the inherited trait of Cain and Able,
That brothers must murder each other?
Can competition be done on an even slate?
Why must we want to dominate,
In sports, race, religion and power?
Even within the same homogeneous groups,
Hatred and mistrust feed its troops,
Overnight a new coup has taken over,
And old leaders have to take cover!
Politicians have this one fear:
“If I miss killing you, then my end is near!”
Is this earth in such an ugly state,
That Hate has replaced Love instead?

OUR LIFE IS TETHERED BY AN UNSEEN STRING


Lum's space

A bird flying high in the sky,
Saw a kite flying by,

“How can you fly without wings and feathers?”

“Oh I can because I am made of paper!”

“Why are you tethered by a string?
Your freedom is curbed don’t you think?”

“What freedom do you think you have?
When you too have an unseen string attached?”

BIRDS HAVE FREEDOM TO FLY AND ROAM WHERE THEY LIKE,
NONE CAN STOP THEM IN THEIR FLIGHT!

A KITE HAS LIMITED FREEDOM AS LONG AS ITS LEASH,
IT CAN ALSO FLY WHEREVER IT WISHES,

BOTH THEIR LIVES ARE CONTROLLED BY STRINGS ATTACHED,
THERE IS NO ABSOLUTE FREEDOM LIKE THE REST!

THE GREATEST JOY


The greatest joy in life,

Is very elusive;

It comes stealthily and unexpectedly,

Without any fanfare or whatsoever!

Only on hindsight we then realize,

But too late to grasp hold of it!

Every occasion can be a great joy,

When we know how to savour it;

We must be prepared to acknowledge,

Each joy is the greatest joy,

For the greatest joy is yet to come!

CREATING MORE SPACE…..


In crowded buses and in trains,

Creating more space is strain,

Lugging luggage, carriers and bags,

Where to put them is best;

Can putting bags on floor,

Create more space for more?

Straps entangle feet will make us fall;

Carrying our bags on our back,

Will make the space more compact;

How to find a perfect solution?

Unless we have  bigger and more spacious buses and trains!

 

TEAMWORK


Teamwork,

No idling,

Everyone must work;

Synergy in working unity,

Progress in achieving the goal,

Celebration of success in team spirit;

Everyone has contributed his best,

All share the limelight;

This is teamwork,

Ensuring success,

Guaranteed!
