Adversity Or Blessings

Thrives in adversity...

What is adversity if you are a North Korean and DPRK is your home; every moment is
You can't deny that if you are an Ugandan or Etopian, life is equally bleak, if not tough
The Afgans, especially womenfolks, eat, drink and swim in adversities

It takes more than guts, intellect and wisdom to overcome adversities
It takes alot, alot of commonsense and streetwisdom
Because we get used to what we always do, the norms become habits and habit is second nature

For those who live in Lebanon, Gaza strips, Etopia, Mexican border with USA, North Korea bordering China, gunfire, hunger, persecution...are norms
Adversities??..!! also a norm

Talks of freedom of expression is possible only when one's stomach is full
Expounding political and ideological ideals must be tempered with responsibility
Only the financially well-endowed or barren, or almost bare, can stiffen their stand on their ideological beliefs; there is no middle ground

If you sink into depression because of failures in relationship, examinations, contests...
Or you feel that the world had left you and all the good that you have done went unrecognized...
Count your blessings

Nobody can impose their ideals on you neither can you insist on recognition for a job well-done
Sometimes, somehow life is not what you make out to be...maybe, not yet
And one man's meat is another's poison...when blessings come, it pours

Make do with what you have
Do your best in everything you do
Live best when others live there when fortune turns around

Someday, your cries will be heard

Someday, you will have your final say

But, you must live your best happy, healthy and contented
Why compare with others when we are all made to be different
What are adversities to you may be norm to others

When the world walks out on you and you feel left out and lonely
Think of those destitutes and 'less desirables', in hospice, in warzone and in famine
Think lucky you have been

Blessed are those who can give

Maybe, for some, its time to stop complaining and start living...
