Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Turn a blind eye.

they die.

they cry
they weep
they sigh

you see
you talk
you turn a blind eye.

    • Thankyou for your feedback.. Poignant it is, and distressing is the situation at present.

    • Thankyou for your feedback… There certainly are certain things one can only pretend to turn a blind eye to. Inside, it’s all destroyed.

      • Yes you are true,especially in Today’s world most of us turn’s a blind eye whereas if we come together we can do something but that never happens..

        • Ah yes, but the time to appear unaffected may not prevail forever.

  3. But don’t we all?

    Blinded by self regard.
    Blinded by false sympathy.
    Blinded by our inability to look squarely at our own suffering, much less that of others.

    • Self regard, false sympathy.. You are right.. Turn a blind eye, forward the blame. I don’t know what else to say.

  5. they die.

    they cry
    they weep
    they sigh

    you see
    you talk
    you turn a blind eye.

    Until a day comes when

    you cry
    you weep
    you sigh

    they see
    they talk
    they turn a blind eye.

    And you only ask why…


    Great things come in small packets, and you just proved it๐Ÿ™‚

      Arindam, This was definitely another amazing turn-over of the already established poem!๐Ÿ˜€

      September 27, 2013 at 1:32 am

      • Thanks… Ghalia!

        September 27, 2013 at 8:24 am

      • Sure it was! Us ‘already established’ poem ko this has actually completed.

          Jee, you ignited the spark, and then someone blew up the town. So you get the trophy for laying the foundations maybe?๐Ÿ˜€

          September 28, 2013 at 11:33 am

          • Hahah๐Ÿ˜€ That someone literally ‘blew up the town’!

            September 29, 2013 at 12:47 am

          • Surely… the someone who ignited the spark gets the trophy for laying foundations, and also blowing up of the town because the blowing up was just a natural consequence of the spark…๐Ÿ™‚

            September 29, 2013 at 7:43 am

          • I wouldn’t have blown it up myself. I have less courage aese maamlaat me.

            September 29, 2013 at 5:57 pm

          • What courage? Did I do something courageous?

            September 29, 2013 at 9:49 pm

          • Han, in a way. What I posted was in a more general way. I discussed our selfishness only. What you did was mention the after-affects, the consequences of one’s attitude when they turn a blind eye. That they may undergo the same challenges, and end the same way for someone else’ indifference.

            September 29, 2013 at 11:48 pm

          • Hmm…๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for calling me corageous๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Wow yaar Maria….kahan se seekhti ho aisi batain ? Love it….Me yei sochti hun kabi kabi news daikhtay huay….Per pher I turn a blind eye too….Cuz I don’t know what to do ! We all are equally selfish I guess !

    September 29, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    • Kahan se seekhti hun? Itna kuch hota rehta hae saamny, seekhnay ki zarurat nhi parti.
      Exactly. I turn a blind eye, you do, we all do. And one day they will, just as Arindam said. We are all selfish, and selfish people get their teachings in special ways!

      Tou finally aglay Sunday aap agaen? Ab sirf Sundays ko you’ll be seen, no?๐Ÿ˜ฆ๐Ÿ˜€

      September 29, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      • Sab k saamnay hota rehta hai itna kuch…seekhtay sirf kuch log hain and you are one of them๐Ÿ™‚

        September 30, 2013 at 4:03 am

          10 din baad studies ko tata finally? *waiting*๐Ÿ˜‰ Love you too.

          September 30, 2013 at 1:25 pm

          • You know everything…You just don’t have told yourself yet !
            Yes I know every human is selfish….animals ka I don’t know I have done Phd on humans not animals๐Ÿ˜‰
