Changing times  

Posted by Divya A L in

Someone once told-
"You are the best, unlike the rest...
Remain the same forever...I like you so much for what you are!! "
Felt highly elated, as though i was driving a ferrari car...

Received appreciations for all that i did
Until one day, i was told that i was as immature as a kid

Slowly, the silliest of the things were seen zooming deeply in
As though they were as important to the fish as its fin..

Time spinned, things drastically changed,
Everything around me started to look so strange...

Next comes a day when i hear,
"You got to be a lot better dear!!"
It then made me wonder,
About the list things for my betterment, i'd have to ponder..

The realization struck very hard
The list included "EVERYTHING", in which i was expected to strike a chord....

And now, the only last thing for which my thoughts pause
Is to know "what i am and what i REALLY was!!!"

hmmm...Maybe the problem was with the statement "I like you so much for what you are!!" and being elated about it..People keep changing their opinions and expectations so most often than not, 'maybe' its better to ignore others and be happy at who you are...
Or if you are not happy, change to what would make you happy...That way atleast you can be consistent.:)

@dilip: :) yes true... But i was wondering, what would a person gain trying to flatter the other when his/her expectations are exactly opposite to what the other person is.... And yes, falling for such such things, further complicates the issue... and generally this is what happens...

Many times, we are not able to listen and appreciate ourselves, yet we take into our hearts what other have to say about us.. amusing, isn't it!! Your writing has been so deeply thought out.. Kudos!!
