A simple “Hi” leading to unsaid goodbyes..

“Hi!”

*no response*

“I am uninvited. I think you should know my arrival.”

*no response*

“Ignoring me may lead to your downfall”

*no response*

“May be you don’t think, I can visit you. You’re SO wrong!”

*no response*

“Now, get ready to suffer for neglecting me and see my fury”

*goes to doctor and does check-up*

“You may be listening to my voice for the first time because this is the first time you are paying attention and listening attentively but I was screaming and trying to let you know to get rid of me when I was innocent and a kid. Now, I have matured and I don’t intend to leave you, no matter what you do.”

*gets all nervous when the tests of check up comes as – Cancer positive*

“You will live. But for as long as I want. I am not ready to leave you because you have been a good host to me. Good because you neglected your symptoms and skipped your check ups and I was left to grow and grow I did”

*prayers and chemotherapy*

“You think you can make me weak? Good choice but you are also draining your bank account in the hope of living for some extra days but all in vain. I have knitted such a vicious web of my power that nothing can heal you. Now feel guilty for letting me grow and not killing me when in bud.”

*dies and family weeps and curse cancer*

“Curse me but I will find another reckless host and grow again. For now, feel glad that I have left. See you careless creatures soon enough”

I have written this as a tribute to how Cancer is increasing in our lives, not just the disease but also the ill feeling for someone or something. Any bad/unwanted thing which grows within us is cancer and we have to make sure that we kill it in the bud stage and not feed it, till it kills us. Ego, anger to name some. There is love.There are smiles. Spread them and feed them and life will we sweet.

P.S. : Happy Sunday and do tune to La Vie en rose of Louis Armstrong ❤

Guilt should be replaced by …

We were so close
Living just streets away
Still I didn’t know her
We went to same guitar classes
Still I didn’t know her
Just timings were a bit different
We had 13 mutual friends in Facebook
Still I didn’t know her
How come I didn’t know her?
She’s so perfect
Once I knew her
I cursed and regretted all these years
I could have met her before
And got to know her better
And spent awesome time with her
Made her smile more often
I just wish all the things
I could have done with her
I could have done for her
I could have done to her
And what did I do?
Curse God
Curse Humanity
Curse everything and anything
Wanting to say and show her
How much I love her
I should had given her more flowers
When she was with me
Battling with cancer
Than the daily bouquet on her coffin
Why do I had to learn that
Gratitude should be shown more often than Guilt
In such a harsh, inhumane way

P.S. : Welcome the weekend with a bit of Love. Today’s tune is Nothing of The Script(again one of my favorite).
