Random 31: Two is company

Neither movable,

Nor immovable.

It’s the us time

which gives me strength,

to drift alone.

*****

जिंदगी का मरकज़ चीज़े नहीं हुआ करती। 

चंद लम्हें हैं, जो लौ जलाये रखते हैं।

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.~ Ernest Hemingway,

  1. Beautiful short poem! Not sure I agree wholly with the Hemingway quote, though. Recalling he committed suicide, it is hard to take his advice too seriously sometimes, although he was a great author and did express some profound wisdom.
    But what we must realize is that loving someone utterly is what makes us special. Jesus loves us so much, He was willing to die for us, and calls on us to be just as special; to be willing to die for ones we love. As Zig Ziglar points out, “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough people get what they want.” But with this advice, I would add, THAT cannot be the reason to help people get what they want, or they just become acts of selfishness.
    Btw, did you know swans and their cousins such as these, mate for life?

    1. Thanks for commenting. It’s always good to here different opinions.

      Yes, I have read about monogamous behaviour of Swans and is the reason of my writing in english and hindi. But then since it was Hemingway’s birthday I included his thoughts aswell 😀
