Grains of Rice

I no longer care,
about what's there.
I try not to feel.
That is the best deal.
Emotions make you weak.
Take away free speech.

The mind is the one.
That totals up the sum.
So many things I did right.
I put in my all with great fight.
Yet they did not come to pass.
And so many other things came fast.

What can be said about life?
Just stay away from conflict and strife.
It's not worth it.
If you lose your sleep.
Just breathe and smile.
Enjoy the ride.

Take no offence.
Nothing is permanent hence,
even hurts and deep wounds heal.
Time does it's job and applies a seal.
Of course it depends on your nature.
If you're a cribber, all will be torture.

Just live and breathe; it all ends.
Every breath is God-sent.
I don't really believe in destiny.
Though much of my life has been the work of serendipity. 
Many things just seem too non-coincidental.
But from which side, grace of God or the devil?

Well, sometimes you just have to trust your spirit.
Because the truth is actually hidden within it 
The most important things in life are
Not money, fame, beauty and power.
Health is important, yes.
But there are greater things in the test.

Peace, love and freedom.
These are the gates guarding your garden of Eden.
Restlessness and anxiety, 
Formed in the bosom of circumstantial toxicity.
Hatred, anger, revenge, jealousy.
They only latch on to the owner of misery.

If you have the power to choose,
your opinions and views.
The right to eat, sleep, dress and be,
Whenever, whatever, wherever, however, these three. 
Harmony with social relations.
And irrespective of the hierarchy and obligations.

That my friend, is true wealth.
A good hand you've been dealt.
If in much of life you choose these.
You will not be infected with the strange disease.
The epidemic of human disillusion.
Complicated unnecessary confusions.

Food, clothing and shelter.
And like I said earlier...
Peace, love and freedom.
Health and inspiration.
Human life is made so complicated.
Because selfishness and ego haven't been eradicated.

The vicious cycle will continue to spread.
Unless you and I decide to break this thread.
Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.
It may seem extremely difficult, and yes it is too.
Dust thou art.
Someday return to the start.

So, inhale peace; exhale love.
Give them all desired freedom.
Squash no one in oppression. 
I'm not a grey wise sage.
But I learned all of this with age.
Think of the impermanence of life.
Mere mortals like perishable grains of rice.

  1. “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.”

    Hehe And Always Remember To Ask if Others Love

    What You Love Done to ‘You’ Otherwise

    A Household of Introvert

    And Extrovert

    May Not Hold

    Water of Love Very Long

    Yes Without Continuing Development

    Of Understanding Differences of Others

    With Cognitive Empathy One May Fail the

    Test of Love Altogether Only Doing Harm

    To Others Believing Everyone Should

    See the World the Same Way

    Indeed This is What Often Takes

    Peace, Freedom,

    And Love

    Away Most

    The Lack of Patience

    To Come to Understand the

    Differences of Others And actually

    Cooperate Rather Than Dictate in

    A Monarchy of Expecting Others

    To Do It Our Way… Smiles

    The Do Least Harm

    Such A Vital

    Part

    Of Love

    For How Every Human
    Indeed Breathes God Differently
    in every Color of Spirit Wind that Comes
    And Goes And Happily Returns Again in Cooperation

    Spirit of Least

    Harm Finding

    Out What Makes

    The Other Folks Happy

    And Doing the Best to Tolerate

    And Accept Differences it’s True

    There Are Days that Love is More

    Complicated than an Abbreviated

    Twitter Size of A Golden Rule

    Where in Reality there

    Are Unlimited

    Parts

    As You Relate

    Challenges to meet

    To Keep Love All Together

    Again As You Say in Freedom,

    Peace, And Love And While Some Say

    Love is Only Action and Not Emotional

    Feelings Within Driving Our Reasons

    to Love They Probably Need to

    Check a Bit With Science

    As Science Shows

    Emotions Move

    All We Do In Life First

    And Our Neocortical Mind

    Is only Designed to Navigate

    Emotions in Second Place For It’s

    True This is How Psychopaths Are Born

    And Narcissists in Malignant Form Are Bred

    Often in Abuse and Neglect early on in Life

    Never Wiring the Ability to Feel the Oxytocin

    That Runs the Emotions of Warmth in Love

    Brings That Fires Us to Love

    Others in Natural

    Giving Altruism

    Otherwise one may

    Get ‘Silence of the Lambs’

    Or Another More Slow Torture of Horror

    Show Indeed Regulate Emotions Integrate

    Sense then Master the Kingdom of Heaven

    Within in unlimited Fire of Love To Give And Share More..

    Hehe of course

    In Just

    My Opinion

    And What Research

    In Science Suggests is

    The Source of Faith As

    Well Naturally Love That Actually ‘Breathes’..

    What We Surely Don’t Want to Miss or Lose in Breath..:)

    1. Beautifully covered Fred…so many parts that I absolutely loved. There are so many things I’d love to elaborate on here…you brought up some very very very nice points that seem utopian and irrational to the present world but I couldn’t agree more with you, my friend. At the end of the day….no matter how much is said, one truly learns best the hard way ….through experience. And there are many who never learn. But for those who do…..there must be something up there too….πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ€©πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

  2. Oh my, Ruelha, what an astonishing poem. This here,
    “Food, clothing and shelter.
    And like I said earlier…
    Peace, love and freedom.
    Health and inspiration.
    Human life is made so complicated.
    Because selfishness and ego haven’t been eradicated.”, is wonderous. Truth. Lovely.πŸ™

  3. This is exceptionally good one – flows so beautifully. So much wisdom in one so young! I especially love this verse –
    Peace, love and freedom.
    These are the gates guarding your garden of Eden.
    Restlessness and anxiety,
    Formed in the bosom of circumstantial toxicity.
    Hatred, anger, revenge, jealousy.
    They only latch on to the owner of misery.

    Thank you, beautiful lady.
