Raising the curtains

I was charged like an electron to shock anyone

when people applauded on my brainpower.

I was overwhelmed in proudness to envy anyone

when every data danced in the way I sang.

My proudness touched the boundary of universe

when I solved toughest of tough problem.

.

.

But I failed to read the enigmas of the world

The material world of pains and worries.

I failed to detach the fake belief and it adopted

The whole world as it is seen in my eyes.

I failed to read the harsh realities outside my walls.

My mistake to misread it as the real world.

Now, I realise I was an empty shell so far, which

Failed to catch the lives outside my curtains.

    isn’t that beautiful that someone sees something in us more than just what meets the eye. someone appreciates the efforts we make to be loving and kind to others . to me a person who works on their personality and heart is the best human, no matter how little progress they make they are always ahead of the ones who are stuck with materialistic thoughts

    One cannot live and prosper in isolation. You have to remove the curtains sometime. Being proud isn’t a bad thing if it doesn’t blind your judgement about yourself and others.
