My Enemy

My Enemy

A Poem by Avinash
"

" Found in a Diary, written some 9 years back..sharing it for the first time"

"
I am no saint
Why am I making complaint
Brought upon myself this day
Never thought of it yesterday
Happiness;  an impossible dream
Why should I now scream
I deserve every bit of misery
blunder is my only history
I deserve no mercy
dooms I could'nt foresee
keep revisiting me
no need to look around
I am my only enemy.

Our only enemy is our natural naivety in the face of reality. We learn through trial and error to develop survival traits, and this is what we are all about: Empirical Experimenters. We learn most of all from our mistakes. A mistake is a good thing if it teaches us how better to survive. A small child falls many times before she walks. There’s no use in punishing ourselves, or thinking that we deserve punishment just because we make naive mistakes. If we don’t lean, then we don’t survive.

Really, sometimes we are in such a big mess we cant even think of others to blame things on and perhaps yes, it is our mistake, it has always been but if we take it on to ourself things still dont seem to get better. Can relate to it very well. Extremely well written poem. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks a lot Shaheen :) Your kind words mean a lot
Its true that we are our own enemy. But it is also true that we are our own best friend. What matters is how long it takes us to come in terms with it. Enjoyed reading!

I deserve no mercy
dooms I could'nt foresee
keep revisiting me
no need to look around
I am my only enemy.

There is deep philosophy in this one.
