have faith for its all you have
have courage to bear the darkness
have faith that its not as bad as it seems
have faith that its just a bad phase
have faith that its immaterial
have faith that its still beautiful
have faith, for its all you have

Have faith, its all you have,
hold onto traces of goodness
as long as you can,
debate against yourself,
but cling to faith,
as otherwise its not worth it,
it needs to be shunned !!!

faith will be with you till the end
so pull yourself together
and hang on with the remnants of faith
it will not last forever
it will be gone, just have patience
till it lasts
faith will serve you well
treat it with care, with respect
n be with it at all times

problem with always minding your own business

why do u care? Is it your attitude in life? Well it is mine many a times, but then I blame myself for hours..I donno how rest all live with it. I know its a huge unnecessary extravagant time waste to indulge in pursuits which are not so much of your business and waste time, but hello you are the one who needs to run society in a manner it should. If you won’t stand today for others, who will stand for you tomorrow? We all will become stupid society of mean people, minding their own business.. Or maybe that way would be best, isn’t it.. I donno ..unless ur home is on fire u don’t expect anything from others..Anyways whatever u think is right.. then forget it if people choose to leave u and spoil all efforts to satisfy their whims.. after all its so called right way for them..God help us all.. I guess he already does Sorry God, not bothering u again.. mind ur business of running the world..this weird weird world..

The Complexity of Songs

Reading about Donald_Knuth, stumbled on his paper, " The Complexity of Songs", seems like an interesting read.. Will post its contents overview once I am done. Have read one book of his "Art of programming series", which shows that writing can be fun and so can be learning. Who better to illustrate it than this great man in varied ways same as his varied domains of expertise.. Hoping to read more of his works in coming few days..
