Transforming oneself is not easy to do

Finding the right way is the first step

A true friend for guiding how to do

(Sheen-October 2016)

As long as one doesn’t take it really to be true, one can hear it in one ear, and let it go through the other. It does feel nice to hear from someone extolling you to no end, but in the end it’s deceiving your own self. A time comes when you start believing what the flatterer tells you, and you began having a false image of yourself.  

It’s better to have an enemy, where you know where you stand, than having a friend who lets you believe you are too wonderful for words, and the reality is otherwise.

My Shadow

My shadow walks beside me

I do wish it could talk

Could tell me how it feels

And other tales to shock

But it is a silent friend

Has all the secrets on lock

It sometimes stretches ahead of me

At other times it is short

At times it disappears

To reappear at will

I wonder how it does it all

To know it will be a thrill

Who Needs a Friend

Empty words and meaningless chatter

Is the real world of friends I know

Who really needs a friend to break your trust

When the so called friend is no better than a foe

Daily Prompt: Why Can’t We Be Friends?
Do you find it easy to make new friends? Tell how you’ve mastered the art of befriending a new friend.


A true and real friend is hard to find
If you find one, don’t let go
Learn to laugh, appreciate, do more
A friend is a flower, in the garden you grow

Will You Be My Friend?

I will look out for you
Constantly and always
Finding paths of happiness
Trust and faith abiding
Walking hand in hand
Will you be my friend?

I will like you for always
As a true friend who will care
Sharing my world with you
Feelings and thoughts to bare
Hearing what you say
Lighting life like a sun ray
Will you be my friend?

Forgetting Things

Lately I have started forgetting things. It’s not at this stage, where I should feel alarmed, but I do feel worried a bit. I do hope I am not at an early stage of Alzheimer.

Before going for groceries I do make a note, but the thing is I forget it at home. It’s either that, or I misplace it some where else. If I put it in my purse, it magically loses itself in the labyrinth of my purse. I keep searching for it, and in the end I gave up. I return home, and whoa the things I needed most, were the things I forgot.

The other day, a funny thing happened. A friend talked to me about something about her grandchild. Later on, probably she was worried that I may talk to the person concerned. She kept phoning me, day in and day out. I kept wondering as to what she wants, and you will ask why? The answer is, she phones me once in a blue moon. Anyway the cat came out of the bag after two days. She asked me not to say what she had told me. I set her mind at rest, and finally when she was assured of my “good intentions” I asked her, “what did you tell me?”

Has this happened to you?
