We all have within.
All we need is a matchstick.
Passion, anger, grief or greed
Fire devours, without paying a heed.
Play with it, only when you know, how to douse
Don’t let it romp, untamed, in your mind, in your house.

  1. Flame that burns with an emotion of its own, a diff purpose yet we have it all. Beautifully packed Maniparna! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What you said makes perfect sense. These emotions are indeed a fire and devour indiscriminately. I’m guilty of extreme anger. Although I’ve curbed it a lot, I’m still blinded by a sudden dazzle at times.

    You summed the concept so beautifully!

  3. It always does well to remember that fire burns. And one couldnt put it better to mean that one should know how to douse the flame.
    A very strong message you have sent across.

  4. Well said Maniparna. Emotions, such as Passion, Anger, Jealousy, Grief or Greed, when taken to the extreme are as powerful as fire. These can surely devour us if we do not know how to douse the fire,

  5. Yes, these flames of anger and greed keeps hovering around us and we want to keep distance from such danger zones but as rightly said a small spark can douse everything. We need to keep our mind and heart away from such trap but yes never easy, after all we are all human beings and the weakness and the flaws are very much within us and we keep learning from such fire.
    Indeed very profound thoughts and beautifully juxtaposed with the image of flame and fire…
    Have a lovely Sunday.

  6. Words rousing in its impact. May fire be in the belly, and all right places to power engines of your endeavours in the days ahead. Season’s greetings…
