If it came down to the end,
would each man dare to say,
that deep within his soul,
he had a truth to bare,
he had let a good one slip away.
Was it the sands of time,
Or fear that kept him away,
Or were his empty pockets too hard to bear,
Or was it that he just couldn’t say,
what he wanted to say,
and so she slipped away.
Haunt him forever this must,
that they are strangers with mistrust,
in the arms of another man she was thrust,
forever lost will they stay,
because he let her slip away.
False pretense he needs to keep,
when day to day people he meets,
his conscience he can’t confront,
when her memory comes in the forefront,
a missing piece will always stay,
because she slipped away.
Last few breaths away,
her memory he can’t keep at bay,
regrets fill the air,
things he should have said,
to keep her from slipping away.
Everything is in place, but it still doesn’t seem right.
Winning something always means losing something.
They say wait for it to be right, but the wait tires you out so much that you question if you want it anymore.
Even if we get it all, my question is can you handle it all.
Dig deep and see what the soul thirsts for – love, respect and progress.

Reading about Michael Burry, who was one of the first investors in the world to recognize the impending subprime mortgage crisis and had the balls to bet against it. This is the part I love – He has described his “natural state” as an outsider who “just likes to find my own ideas”, saying, “no matter what group I’m in or where I am, I’ve always felt like I’m outside the group, and I’ve always been analyzing the group”. We need more people like this in our communities, companies we work for, charities we give to. These are the people that have the integrity to speak the truth when many others are just seeking to please people and just go along with the flow of what’s popular or politically correct.
I have never understood and probably will never understand the fascination and pre-occupation that many parents have with exams. If the only thing parents did well was to help their kids go on this journey of self-discovery and help them find their true talents, the reason for their being and trust me everyone has one. And no matter how big or small that reason was in the eyes of the world, but in the eyes of their parents it was very special. If only that would happen, we would have happier people on this planet who are confident of who they are and who they want to be and of course save hours of time spent in therapy. And please don’t tell me that I don’t have kids and so I won’t understand. I may not be a parent but I definitely was a kid once. Seriously parents back off with your unrealistic expectations and pressures that you create for your kids. Give them some breathing space, they are not you and they do have their individual personalities.
This deserves to be awarded ‘The Selfie of the Year’. Here is Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong tweeting a selfie alongside the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, taken at the Commonwealth leaders meeting in Srilanka. I think this is a brilliant example of using Social Media for Diplomacy. Well done!
