What matters?

Once you understand how your words affect someone’s whole life, their decisions, their behaviour, their view about themselves and about the world, you will surely think before you speak. You will understand what really matters!

The hair, the nose, the lips,
The ears, the neck, the hips,
The shades, the thickness,
The belly fat, the fitness,
The arms, the stretchmark,
The wheatish, the fair, the dark,
That dark circle, or the hairy chest,
Baldhead, or size of the breast,
Thin, abs, or stout,
Glasses, Braces, with or without,
Few things are in and few are not in our control.
From when did these things become a reason to troll?

Our identification marks are not who we are,
We call people by how they look and not by what they are!

We have dived so deep in this,
that this has become the new normal,
calling a sane person “mad” and “mental”,
we have proudly become judgemental.

We need to look cool,
and laugh with our gang,
by trolling someone,
who does not even understand the meaning of the slang.

Where are we moving to, as a society?
In school books, lost are the lessons of empathy.
When will we understand what really matters?
Trolling does not build hope for someone, it shatters and scatters.
