I Hate To Be A Nice Guy

ID-100149629

A nice guy, who is always agreeable
Not because he doesn’t have an opinion
But because he respects opinion of others
And they think he agrees with what they say,
Do whatever they do, follow what they follow,
But when he expresses his opinion, counters their opinions,
They think he’s being irrational, eccentric,
He’s being weird, strange; no one wants his different opinion
They all get mad at him, inside their mind, they are saying
Something is wrong with him; we didn’t expect it from him,
Well, he is a nice guy, why is he behaving so strange?
He is not allowed to be himself or take a stand,
Those eyes saying you are not anymore the guy you used to be
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who doesn’t say anything
When others are talking about someone,
Behind their backs, discussing their shortcomings,
He wants to stay away from negativity,
So he stays silent, and that silence is misinterpreted
As he thinks the same way we think about them
Someone sells everyone out and informs the guy,
What they were talking about him and his demeanor
With anger taking hold of his mind, he rushes to confront,
But finds someone easier to do blame, of course, that nice guy,
Spit out everything on him to empty his mind,
But the nice guy doesn’t say a word,
He understands this is not the right time to solve the misunderstanding
But he has to hear those hurtful words,
I didn’t expect it from you; you are a nice guy, not like those guys
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who always obeys his parents,
Do not misbehave, good in studies, no complaints from teachers,
Always following the system, not doing anything naughty,
Or something that his parents wouldn’t allow,
One day, he finds something he loves,
Something that he is so passionate about,
Something that takes his sleep away,
He wants to follow his dream, do what he loves to do,
But his parents do not allow it on terms of not being realistic,
Even after persistent requests, they are not ready to understand him
He is forced to do what they think is right,
Because he never did something against their wish,
This time will not be an exception,
Because he is always been a nice guy, and never rebelled,
And I hate to that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who admires that beautiful girl
Treats her with respect and generosity,
Listens to her small things, even though it doesn’t matter to him,
She shares everything with him; he helps her in every way possible,
Never try to show-off or pretends to be a flirt,
But in the process, falls in love with her spontaneity, her smartness,
When expresses his feelings to her,
All he gets is, I don’t look at you that way,
And an assurance from her that
Someday, he will get a very nice girl
Gets friendzoned or brozoned,
In a meantime, showing her boyfriend’s picture,
Asks how’s my handsome hunk? Isn’t he cute?
Yes, he is, is my diplomatic response
Until I notice his cool sports bike & Armani shoes,
He has to make those genuine feelings disappear,
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who knows what’s going on in
His friends’ mind, life & can spot a little change in behavior
Who listens to their feelings and stay calm when they are angry
They take out their frustration on him,
Speak their heart out, he listens intently,
Assists in solving their problems, clean their mess
But when he is angry and emotional, they ask him to keep quiet
Or make fun of his display of emotions,
He is not allowed to take his frustration, his anger out,
They take his feelings for granted, do not respect those,
No one is ready to give an ear to listen what he has to say
Not interested to understand what’s going on in his mind,
He’s taken for granted for always being sweet and smiling,
And I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

A nice guy, who becomes lonely inside,
Wishes to become The Joker from The Dark Knight,
Plans to form a network of all other nice guys,
To wear an actual mask to unmask every truth,
To clear every misunderstanding in a hostile way,
By choosing the path of destruction,
The world doesn’t get them when they are being nice
Maybe the other way will do it,
Though he has a dark side, but can’t choose the path of destruction,
And the crazy fact, this time, it’s not people,
But him, who doesn’t expect ‘that’ from him,
And again, I hate to be that nice guy in the first place.

What’s Inside Wasn’t Alive When It Was Light

ID-100126790

“I don’t know what’s going on in my life,” said a frustrated boy to monk.

“What is the matter?” asked monk.

“I think I’ve lost control over my life. I can’t do what I want to do, can’t express myself, I think I’m wasting my time, over-thinking about small things, just passing the days, not doing something that would add value to my life as well as others’ lives. I’m being someone else to show others that I’m happy, but I’m not.”

“How did you get to this point?”

“I don’t know.”

“Tell me, how do you spend your day?”

“I wake up at 7. Go to gym because my father wants me to. Till 8, I exercise. Then, get ready for a class at 9, which my parents wanted me to join. Till 12, I spend the time in class somehow. Till 1, I’m home. Till 4, I have lunch, play games on computer, and do some reading. From 4 to 6, I sleep. From 6 to 8, I spend time on computer again. At 8 to 10, I read or study. At 10, I have dinner and then watch TV and go to sleep.”

“How long have you been doing this?”

“From past 2 months, since I finished college. I wanted to do something else. But my parents, my friends are not convinced that would work, so I am not doing it. Or sometimes, I do that. But, I can’t do that wholeheartedly.”

“Why don’t you do that? There will always be some people who don’t agree with you. It does not mean you should give in.”

“But..”

“First of all, you must accept full responsibility for what’s happening to you. You are responsible.”

“Yes, you are right. I know that. But..”

“What did you do when you were in college? Why didn’t you work on it, so till this time, you would have had something in hand as an output to back up your intentions. You give in to comforts and fun. And it has become your habit. You don’t want to do what’s difficult. You find an easy way out. You got to do what necessary and difficult. Otherwise things won’t change. It will get darker and darker for you.”

“But it’s uncomfortable.”

“Do it anyway. When it gets dark, everything ceases and the only thing that remains alive is: what’s inside. But the crazy fact is, it gets dark, because what’s inside wasn’t alive when it was light.”

When The Road Will Be Clear..

“First learn how to conduct a business, how those people have meetings, how they strategize a plan,” said Kelly to Shaun.

 “It will take at least 4-5 years,” replied Shaun.

 “Obviously, you need those as you are not good enough.”

 “Yeah, I will learn in the process. Actually we will never be good enough. There will always be a room for improvement.”

 “Why can’t you wait for the right time?”

 “But, there is no guarantee that I’ll be alive till the right time comes.”

 The crazy fact is, waiting for the road to be clear is futile; we need to drive through as per the present conditions.

Uncertain Table Of Life

“Your Father was a humorist. He used to write humorous stories for hours, sitting here in tranquility. People loved his stories a lot,” said Michelle to her 8 years old grandson.

“Wow!” replied Oliver.

“You were only few months old. On that day, he was walking roadside, observing the world to seek stories, and a car crashed him. This table has not seen him since.”

“How did this happen?”

“A drunken man was driving that car.”

“Why did this have to happen to him?”

“The crazy fact is, you can certainly control what happens on this table, but not on the uncertain table of life.”

Does Every Student Must Be Equally Bright?

ID-100147656

Does all trees should grow to the same height
Does every student must be equally bright

When a student tops in the exams,
Every one goes & congratulates him,
He thinks like he has won the world
but when the student who always gets
below average marks, why no one cares?

When a topper says that it was a tough paper,
Every one says the same, feel pity for him
He goes into  deep depression
But why no one asks the below average student
Why is every paper tough for him?

When a topper fails to score top marks anytime,
Everyone thinks, something was unfair,
He thinks why does this happen to me
But when the below average student fails in subject
Why every one thinks something is wrong with him

When a topper was learning by rote
So that he can answer in oral next day,
He thought he will impress the teacher
But the bold below average student was,
Expressing his feelings to a girl he liked

When a topper was copying the answers from guide,
So that he won’t get punished the next day,
He thought that was the intelligent thing to do
But the dreamer below average student was,
Noting down quotes from the inspirational biography

When a topper was maintaining a decent demeanor
So that he can look decent & sincere in people
He thought no one will speak against him
But the below average student was in fantasy,
Taking off filters of bike so that it sounds like riding a superbike

When a topper was engulfed into memorizing theories,
So that in coming exams he will be a topper again
And get applause from teachers & posters in town for topping
But the believer below average student was,
Forming own theory out of curiosity to enjoy brainstorming

The facts will be crazy, if articles related to topper will not remain as ‘a’
And for ‘the’ below average student, it will turn to ‘a’ in the future

Whatever Happens

ID-100170638

At xerox center.

“Hurry up, friend! Staple it fast! This is the time to close the shop,” said shopkeeper to Shrijit.

“Yes, uncle! Just wait. I was arranging the documents & lost the track,” said Shrijit adjusting the pages hurriedly.

“Ohh.. How much time do you need for this easy work?” criticized shopkeeper & went in to pack up everything.

And then he realized that the main wire of machine has stuck under the machine because he dragged it in hurry. The only way to take out that wire was to lift the machine up. As it was a heavy machine he could not do it himself.

“Hey, friend! will you please help out with this?” asked he politely.

“Yeah, sure!”

They both lifted machine little bit upward & wire was out.

“Sorry, friend for being rude with you. If you wasn’t losing the track, I would have done it tomorrow & I don’t know whether the wire would have been in same condition,” said shopkeeper to Shrijit.

“It’s fine, uncle. I understand.”

The crazy fact is, no matter what happens to us, it is going to lead us at better place. The optimistic attitude is the player.

The life seems..

WE are astonished when we learn something ironical, facts that are not politically correct.

We are not believed based on truth, but the way we expressed what is on our mind with confidence & conviction, people don’t have time to find the truth. So they accept the truths based on the expressions which proves to be the simplest way to lie. But the crazy fact is we suffer the consequences of the truth, not lie.

When we do not have anything to say, we must keep quiet. We don’t have to say in order to make connection with unknown person because we are supposed to say something. But the crazy fact is connection grows when obvious things are spoken out & it merely grows when spontaneous reaction comes because most of the people are more concerned about approval, not reality.

Do not try to live up to the expectations of others, because expectations never end & there no guarantee that you will be able to live up everytime. And the crazy fact is when you try to, they take you for granted & when you don’t give a damn about them, you are more valued.

I read ‘treat people the way you want to get treated’, but what happens when the other person doesn’t understand it. They don’t care about your feelings when it comes to their. But the crazy fact is we do not accept that the other person will not understand until he will be sailing in the same boat as us.

The crazy fact is life seems too short to when we try to live on our terms, but seems too big when we have to live on others’ terms.
