Let them judge

It is a skill to generate a strong voice for oneself, ignoring the voices of those people who poke their nose into others’ lives. This is a free verse depicting the aforesaid message, with each line written as a six-word story.

Don’t retaliate referees in your life.

Let them watch as you grow.

Let them judge until proven wrong.

Let them remark until pain boomerangs.

Let’em voice until they can’t anymore.

Silence… befitting response to baseless judgments!

Let inner peace be your judge!

Cheers!

      I’m glad you’re in concordance with my thoughts. If our actions are targeted towards obtaining mental peace, our life will be quite smooth.

  4. Anisha, I like your free verse poem very much. Very well-written. You give good advice, but it takes a great deal of self-control to follow it!

    I was taught by my parents that people who make unkind comments are “trying to get a rise out of you.” If you don’t react, there is no reward for them and eventually, they will leave you alone.

    Love the three monkeys! My grandfather had a set on his bookshelf when I was a child. I have them on a brass pin given to me by my nieces.

    Thank you for a very helpful and meaningful post. All the best! Cheryl

      Thank you very much, Mam. True, things are easier said than done.

      Your parents have taught you wise words. It’s true that if we react, they gain pleasure and want to repeat those unkind behaviour often. It’s very good to ignore them.

      That’s a wonderful possession to hold. I’m happy that you shared your memories with us. Your comments are always wholesome and so thoughtful. I enjoy reading them.

      I wanted to reply patiently to this comment, and so I’m replying very late. Sorry about that.

  6. “Let them judge until proven wrong” something that I can unswervingly relate. People who judged me wrong now claim that I make sense. The irony of life…

      Glad you could relate with the words, Aashifa.

      I agree judgments one of the ironies of life. But, if we trip behind them, we lose our value.
