The truth about Man

One of my best friends mailed this to me … it’s supposed to be in the Posted Mails category, but I prefer to keep it under Xtra !!! .

Anyways, read and realize (and smile too!) and of course, share it with friends.

When without money, eats wild vegetables at home
When has money, eats same wild vegetables in fine restaurant.

When without money, rides bicycle;
When has money, rides exercise machine.

When without money, walks to earn food
When has money, walks to lose the fat

Man, O Man!  Never fails to deceive thyself!

When without money, wishes to get married;
When has money, wishes to get divorced.

When without money, wife becomes secretary;
When has money, secretary becomes wife.

When without money, acts like rich man;
When has money, acts like poor man.

Man, O Man! Never can tell the simple truth!

Says stock market is bad but keeps speculating;
Says money is evil but keeps accumulating.
Says high positions are lonely but keeps wanting them.
Says gambling & drinking is bad but keeps indulging;

Man, O Man ! Never means what he says and never says what he means!

What say you: do you have anything to add to this list ???

The One-Eyed Monster

(This poem is written in reference to a famous story which explicitly explains the love of a mother for her child)

The bell rang; my mom opened the door,

My friends screamed and fell to the floor.

“It’s the one eyed monster with a knife,”

They cried “It’s going to kill you, run for your life.”

I was ashamed to have a mother with only one eye,

Who scared everyone as she passed by.

My mother brought me up since my dad passed away,

Crying and isolating herself all night and day.

I grew up somehow, playing as an orphan,

I married and moved away not informing of the relation.

After 10 happy years, I received a letter,

From the one I left behind, thinking all bitter.

The letter read as follows, and mind you

It changed my life for all I knew :

My dear child I’m returning to God,

But there is one thing which is a bit odd,

This one thing needs to be cleared

And listen carefully, it might sound weird.

When you were a small child, you lost one eye,

I gave you mine, and its obvious why.

All these years I didn’t tell you

But I always wished that you knew.

And now as I depart, I’d like to say

I’ll always love you, come what may.”
