Mesmerizing, scintillating, tranquilizing beautiful I am, thought the rose…
As she looked into her reflection with delight,
A seed of doubt crept into her, and sent it a little root,
Am I good enough, Am I right??
The rose wandered with these thoughts and thought….
Maybe, I should’ve been small and fragrant like a Jasmine,
But a Jasmine is very tender and delicate,
Or maybe, vast like a Lotus,
But Lotus grows in the muck,
Maybe, I shouldn’t have had thorns,
Or maybe, I should’ve been designed differently,
Then people would’ve liked and adorned me..
Am I good enough, am I right?
As she was wandering in the garden heartbroken,
Feeling miserable and forsaken,
She met the calm and serene, blissful chrysanthemum,
Merry and gay, on the way to the sanctorum,
Who paved the way for her dear friend rose, telling her,
Be the beauty that you are, for that is what you are meant to be,
Do not tend to the seed of doubt, for it steals the true self you ought to be,
And whatever be the path you take, dear friend,
We shall all meet at His Feet, in the END !!
I am good enough, I am right !!
In life, we often tend to play the game of looking good and get stressed, no end, until we find a friend, guide, teacher who steers us in the right path. An attempt to portray the same.
