My Neighbour’s Cat

It takes immense efforts to love someone in true sense. Well, you don’t need to love someone to understand love itself. May be nature has designed  her children such way. Sometime it looks brutal and sometime beautiful.

So what if you have careless and heartless neighbours. And just like any other day, I was checking my plants and I saw a dead kitten, very tiny. Next to my plants. I was scared and looked around. Then I saw my neighbour’s cat sitting few meters away, in a corner, much in pain.

She was almost unconscience, unable to move, exhausted. So there was no point to disturb her. I called my neighbour. They came, they saw and they left. Got the kitty some food for next two days while she moved around.

And then she left after three days. But she regularly visited. She used to sit near the plants where her kitten was dead. She used to looked at it as if the kitten is still there. This kept happened for another week.

Then she was back to normal routine. Hardly any visit anymore.

And one day looking at her while her gaze was fixed at her imaginary kitten, I realized that it takes immense pain for an animal to survive and to reproduce. Every living thing including humans had gone through and still goes through the pain of evolution.

Evolution. The pain we as children of nature must bear.

But what about the pain we cause, artificial evolution, to satisfy our platter.

Every piece of meat on your table has gone through same pain which your cat or dog might suffered. Difference, farming isn’t nature’s idea.

You have right to do what you believe is correct.

What if humans forced to give birth to specific no. of children to fulfill war demands. What if abortions are banned. Absurd and stupid question.😼 Because we’re humans and somehow most of us believe that Earth and its belongings are tailor-made for us.

We are not different or above from any living entity on this planet. We are part of this complex system.

That cat has reminded me ancient wisdom. Your karma decides your next life.

Empathy exists?

I have few sad stories to share, someday. But I’m holding them inside for a long time. These are the stories of people whom I have experience or seen from distance. It happens with all of us when we feel sad for someone else, someone we don’t know, never met or seen. Yet we see through their problems. Stories will come and go, what remains is your inside !

For now a perspective on

Empathy

Adrian Ponz_The Selfish Giant

Never really into the shoes

of others,

yet trying to fit

my emotions.

Is it really me,

kind and compassionate

or the apathy became empathy.

When I shed the tears,

for a story,

it was me, selfish me.

What cries is a thought,

that fits into our mind !

Mirror of no reflection
By Angeloffallingstars

I have not seen megapixels

but words are my reflection.

Right or left, color and colorless,

views are not on sills !

If you can see,

there at the end of every word,

I’m standing, clear.

If you can read, (there lies my heart),

between the lines !

There is no selfie,

that matches many faces.

If you can read,

at the sound of every word,

there recline, self me !

Fri…..ends !

None the complaints,

not any expectations.

Best has passed,

and we lived it !

Troubles are over,

and we shared it!

Adventures are gone sore,

fortunately we tasted fresh !

Share of joy and sorrow,

together we hold it.

Lying is a sweet candy,

to hold the bitter, frustration.

Still, none is the charge.

Let life favour us,

with true flavors, friends !
