    Proverb chosen: //Ignorance is bliss//

    Born to same parents
    One is God's blessing,
    other is parents' burden
    One is their pride,
    other is shame!

    //Gender inequality is a product of ignorance//

    She is not the right girl,
    She laughs too much,
    She speaks too much,
    She works too late,
    Her husband cooks!

    //Character assassination stems from ignorance//

    You are a boy
    You should be tough
    You are strong
    You can never be wrong
    You can't be in tears
    You don't have any fears
    You are the protector
    You can't be afraid!

    //Stereotypes are babies of ignorance//

    Choose awareness.
    Choose knowledge.


    //Ignorance is ignorant//

    //Knowledge is bliss//

    Let bygones be bygones

    I lie sprawled like discarded rubble
    My face stuck to the cold hard floor
    Torn in pieces, shredded dreams have now
    Left my soul empty and alone

    Your sharp words cut through me
    Pierced my skin, lacerated my hopes
    My confidence lies tattered now
    My self respect I claw at to try and grope

    I’ll bear these wounds for a long time
    I don’t anticipate healing anytime soon
    The burning pain from these slashes
    Have left me shrivelled like a prune

    Slowly as reality begins to sink in I realise I’ve lost everything because of you today
    My pride, my love, my strength have evaporated
    I’ve been left dumbfounded with nothing to say

    Should I let now let bygones be bygones
    When you’ve left me with nothing to call my own ?
    Is this the fruit of my unfailing affection
    That I’m reaping today after it being sown?

    Would you have forgotten and forgiven me
    Had I mercilessly quelled your existence ?
    Would you have moved on quietly and gracefully
    After between us I’d have put unreachable distance ?

    Inspite of carrying your betrayal to my grave
    I will endeavour to rebuild my empty life
    Never letting another come close to me again
    Never wasting my time again in conflicting strife

    I wish you were there by my side
    since long my arms have been
    waiting for you open wide

    though you are too far or so yonder
    in your absence anxious heart
    has been growing fonder

    in days ,forbearance, in poems i do hide
    for without them, in lonesome dark
    nights i would have died

    in your absolute absence im dying inside
    since my love for you is everlasting
    and eternal, it will never subside

    without you I'm standing time since long
    you not by my side i can still live thousand
    more years; for only to you i do belong

    ~absence makes the heart grow fonder~

    In childhood, we cried to grow old
    And enjoy a lavish life as adults.
    In adulthood, we are craving to become young
    And lead a peaceful life as kids.
    What an irony in ages!!!!
    And that's why they say
    Greener is the grass that is far away.

    He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in that which is greater: and he that is unjust in that which is little, is unjust also in that which is greater.
    — Luke 16:10

    • Faithful in little here on This Earth? Faithful in great on New Earth.

    Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
    — Matthew 23:12

    • Humility is what truly makes us great.

    He has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate;
    — Luke 1:52

    • The irony of faith: that we become lowly in spirit/humble in order to be raised up by God.

    But God has promised us a new heaven and a new earth, where justice will rule. We are really looking forward to this!
    — 2 Peter 3:13

    Perhaps us humanity,

    our life on This Earth is God's way of measuring how little or how much we can be trusted with heavenly roles on our life on the New Earth.

    Proverb

    I have re-realized that it's not necessary that I please the crowd, the world; but rather, it is to please the Crown, the Lord.

    It's not necessary to please everybody; it's enough, enough to be me.

    Words

    The power of a pen is incomparable
    Nothing less that that of a sword
    It can build a world and bring down another
    Structure a bridge over the deepest fjord

    Little drops of ink bear the weight
    Of unspoken hopes and dreams
    They envelop several universes within them
    Concealing so much more than they reveal

    In the scribbles of a scribe words wield
    The potency of making many destinies
    Controlling the trajectory of the written word
    Formulates the future of many mysteries

    More magical than any technological advancements
    Words have the potential to break down walls
    Cause pain or provide providence and comfort
    Bring the message of peace to one and all

    With the ability to provoke and incite wars
    Words command the highest respect
    By influencing thoughts and directing minds
    They infiltrate life’s every aspect

    Words are so much greater than actions
    With little they can achieve so much more
    They can inspire, aggravate, anger or soothe
    Into a web of letters one lure

    Proclamations of beauty, endowing praise
    With them love finds invigoration and direction
    In a few scrawls a pen helps elevate
    The status of all with great precision

    The art of writing would amount to nothing
    If only heliographs covered the rocky walls
    The might of words is something that should
    Be revered and celebrated by all

    Opposing the proverb: actions speak louder than words

    Hollowed out humans!
    What is there to hullabaloo?
    Strutting like a vain peacock.
    You show off to the world.
    Egoistic arrogant individuals
    With play of propaganda
    And Hi-jinks frolicking
    You want to capture the heart
    Where are your actions, duties
    and commitments?
    Mere words will not do
    For 'action speaks louder than words'.

    ��������������:
    The phrase “tongue in cheek” means an ironic way of narration. It refers to something that is said humorously but with an intention of being serious. A tongue-in-cheek remark or attitude is not serious, although it may seem to be.

    ��������
    ������������ ���� ���������� ���� �������������� ������������-

    Some things written with tongue-in-cheek
    Misunderstood can cause some pique
    If someone who is humorless
    Fails to see your fun finesse

    Humor is a trait to treasure
    A trait most often spreading pleasure
    To spread a laugh, a smile or two
    Seems the human thing to do

    Yet sometimes when one’s too cheeky
    He may seem to some a bit too freaky
    So it may be wise to show restraint
    ‘Cause freaky is what you know you ain’t.

    Stanley Cooper explains the positive role of humor in our life in this beautiful short poem, saying that humor provides us with a chance to say serious things plainly. However, if someone fails to find the element of humor in our writing or talk, he will invent different meanings or interpretations. Although humor intends to spread pleasure and laughter, yet sometimes it causes trouble. Therefore, to avoid misunderstandings, one should stay balanced in his fun. The phrase used in the first line demonstrates its meaning in a connotative sense.

    ������������������:
    “The style is humorous, and often tongue-in-cheek, and expresses the same old thinking and the same results.”

    “Your tongue in cheek humor brought shame for the whole group, for you have no sense how to tackle the tricky situation.”

    The proverbial sentence “A picture is worth a thousand words” is one of the famous and common proverbs. It means an artwork or an image can convey meanings more effectively than descriptions. This phrase is usually used in newspaper advertisements. It shows that graphic illustrations are more useful to express the clear thoughts hidden behind a notion rather than words. Most artists, especially in the modern arts, share their message through their art piece. These artworks bring various interpretations and are also hard to get it right. However, an image can undoubtedly give an important message or tell a story using colors, designs, themes, and more.

    A journalist and an award-winning author, Stacy Hawkins Adams, wrote a book series, Jubilant Soul. Worth a Thousand Words is a sequel, which has the second half of the proverb. In spite of using the proverb partially, the title means “a picture is worth a thousand words.” The story revolves around the significant character, Indigo, a passionate young girl who wants to persue her career as a photographer, but she is stuck in several obstacles. The marriage proposal from her long-time beloved, Brayn, is a hindrance to success and career. The protagonist keeps on challenging her strength and emotions as she tries to fight with her love life and future dreams. This proverb has been used metaphorically in the story.

    ✔️

    That breakup saved me

    For which I crumble into pieces

    I beg for perfect metaphors to fit in

    By removal of two separate catalyst

    I pretend for having my soulmate

    I shake my hands with the wolf

    In the core of my heart, it aches

    //But I gave a deaf ear to it

    I learned to hide tragedy by replacing it with simile//

    Bunch of lies, a handful of evil gesture

    Taught me not to rely upon others, blindly

    Decisions made by destiny

    Made me stronger

    Nowhere in the position to love

    But in the path to find my soul

    I breathe

    Love

    Its little crazy,
    for when in order to complete ourself,
    We are in search of someone else.

    Its strange how,
    Someone's presene isn't noticed,
    But absence is felt.

    Its crazy how,
    In search of a happily ever after,
    We run behind someone miles and miles after.

    They say, "Distance makes the heart grow fonder",
    Well its quite evident,
    That might be the reason why,
    Though having a beautiful today,
    We are in search of that "HAPPILY EVER AFTER"

    The relation between us was an absolute wonder,

    As the distance between us never matter,

    Your absence makes my heart grow fonder,

    As we used to find solace in arms of eachother,

    The way you left me made me shatter,

    Will I be able to love again my heart always ponder!!
