The Lament of a Betrayed Heart..

The tooth-fairy ain't real..
Santa ain't real..
Prince Charming ain't real..
God ain't real..
And now, Ram ain't real.

ok...

But Starvation is real...
Poverty is real..
Rape is real...
Nuclear war is real..
Death is real..

The bathos in life we're all subjected to.


How much can this feeble heart take?

24 Confounded-souls had something to say:

hey.. really nice one. touched me.. got me into thinkin that i shld definitely start countin my blessins!! :-)

and oh yea, it feels really weird that wht u believed in all your life was jus fiction.. and had ntn true to it
(not talkin abt my case. i dont blv in ny particular god. i jus blv in a supreme pwr mainly cuz its moral support)

♥busy_writer♥ said...

btw, your blog doesnt show as "updated" on my blogroll.. hmm.. altho the function's been enabled.

Princess Banter said...

Aaaah... I have no words. I agree with every word.

Bhaumik said...

Ultimateeee!!
Generally ur blogs are long and descriptive.. (and ofcourse i love reading them)
But this one, although small, tells a lot... Really touching!!!
Hats off!!!

mayth!! said...

@ Busy writer:
Yes, count you should. I'm starting to fear that they'd say that Michael Jackson isnt real *shudder at the thought* ;-P

I'm not sure why it isnt showing up on your blog..is it that I should be registered in Blogrol or something? dunno..

mayth!! said...

@ Princess Banter
Yeah, sometimes truth hits us like a bus on the road. But sometimes, it isnt truth at all. Thats when it really hurts.

@ Bhaumik:
lol...thanks Bhaumitt. I think I should make my posts shorter and more meaningful ;) :D

wacko said...

....and your blog is real!

:)

Kalyan said...

But your thoughts are Real...this is simply a lovely post. I just can't agree with you more...touching thoughts!

Mystique said...

it's rather depressing, i tell you, that conscious efforts are being made to blot out all that is good, or seems good in this world

bharani said...

well, don't ask me if ram is real... u know what i'll say... all i know is ramayana is a compilation written largely by valmiki...

is hogwarts real?

Mark IV said...

yes... close to tears at the stupidity of politics and the machinery thereof...
reality is a myth... rape, plunder, poverty, hunger, death, suffering, pain are all relative... a societal change that makes us better evolved species

Vidya said...

Surprisingly this heart can take this and more :-)

Keep the faith..

Cheers
Vidya

mayth!! said...

@ Wacko:
Thanks. That was nice :)

@ Kalyan:
Thank you Kalyan. YOu just made my day. Keep coming back :)

@ Mystique:
Very true. Faith just doesnt seem to be given its due respect now. But to quote the blue fish in Finding Nemo, we have to ;Just keep swimming';)

mayth!! said...

@ Bharani:
In the land of the Indus, the Ramayana and Mahabharath, Harry Potter is far cry from the Sri Ram.

@ Mark IV:
Pain is relative. True. But I guess when faith is relative too, we/someone [;)] have to learn to understand that. ;)

@ Vidya:
Sure will Vids. :)

praveen said...

wow...tats really superb....
keep rocking.. :D

Mridhulaa said...

aaaahhhh...you're getting a bit morbid...
btw, i looked your name up in old psbb school mags (fits of joblessness), and you're the sanskrit topper and all...like, WOW!
And btw, I'm a BIG Evanescence fan as well....all fans UNITE...yay!

plzdonttrythisathome said...

Well life aint a fairy tale.. and nice blog... and happy bloggin..... ( ok this is not what i had in mind.!)

akanksha said...

What u said is true...but i guess truth isnt real:-(
We all are Struggling to find the diference between real and fake...but we dont really know what we find out is real or not.

Good post!!!!

bharani said...

i learned one thing...

one can't argue and question faith with logic and science... faith transcends all of it... obviously the world will be utopian if people understand that there are different faiths and that one has to respect another person's right to follow a particular faith as much as he does... even if that faith is atheism...

sadly that's not what's happening..everyone wants to propagandise his/her own faith and in the process ridicules others' faith...this is the reason we are seeing this all this commotion that's happening now...

yep, poverty, war are the tangible and real problems...we have elected our politicians to solve these problems...not to further their vote-bank-agenda by incensing people by attacking faiths... more often than not people fall for it... now that is what i call silly...

mathew said...

short and yet to the point..sometimes wonder how fake the whole world is..No one even cares to acknowledge misery exists in the world...agree with you completely..

lavanya said...

well, it all boils down to what you believe in.

I believe that Ram is real, hes out there, looking out for us.
I believe that not every stranger in the internet is NOT a psychopath middle aged murderer.
I believe in kindness.
I believe that what happened in "You've Got Mail" can happen in real life.


And irrespective of what other people think, I'll still believe in them.
And hence, no one can do anything about it.

Hah.

Only thing we can do is keep believing.

@ Praveen:

@plzdonttrythisathome:
Thanks mate! :)

*~ Mayth!!~* said...

@ Akanksha:
Moreorless so. :)

@Bharani:
Dude! Absolutely :)

@Mathew:
Fake is SO the word.

@Lavanya:
Yeah, that ought to be the manthra from now on. Peace :)
