A failure or success- it all depends on you. These are pieces from her book, the book is available on createspace and amazon- It is a collection of poems and black and white illustrations to go with them.

Moments from the journey

All the angels were playing in heaven’s garden
when they noticed their darling friend
Compassion has been missing these games
since long, how long they did not know.

Love and friendship started to search
saw her sitting on a cloud.
Far away from bustling crowd
they tiptoed to her to startle.

Before they could, their hearts prevented
for she was gazing so hard down at earth below.
When they followed her gaze they noticed it too,
a speck of gentle light shining there.

Compassion saw them and beckoned
together they flew to earth.
The light was a gentle lady in plight
surrendered by evil shadows, invisible pits.

Every time a shadow tried to touch her
with its icy cold fingers or she moved
too close to one of the pits
compassion gently pulled her back.

    • that is why I value it more than love- because anyone can try it- that is giving it, it does not have any condition attached to it, trust, respect… you can feel compassion for your enemies! You don’t have to love them, trust them but you can still feel compassion for them.
