Boat


Life to me is a boat that’s leaking; It’s always been that way. You sail into the waters and float until you drown.

The water is all you got, the water is what keeps you afloat and the water is what drowns you.

Destination is not where you reach; it is where you stop.

    So you really is a pessimist!🤔😅

    The line line though..
    It was like

    In our first grade teachers taught us all that
    Sun rises in the East

    But then down the lane, we understood that we were taught wrong! It was the otherwise the whole time!!

        Yeah me too!
        I used to read my brother’s books when I was in my first grade or so… He was in his seventh… I had to bcoz I was the one who wrote his notebooks.! True!😅 But I liked writing .. so I studied many concepts right then… Like photosynthesis and yeah the fact that… Sun doesn’t rise or sets… But it’s the earth that rotates.
        And I clearly remember confronting my teacher, who said to brush off all these facts from my brain. And learn what’s being taught!
        That’s indian education! Yo man I love it!😅 Textbook is the god!! While for primary kids, it’s their notebooks!😅😂

        1. Wow! 😂 Great point! But maybe there’s a solution to this.
          You can avoid killing though, by flying them off if you can’t prevent them from coming near you. And when you are at your house, take precautionary measures to not even let them in.
          Neem oil helps, though I don’t know exactly how… You may Google it.

        It isn’t as great as yours. It was just a technical answer. Transpiration is a necessary evil for plants. And for us, its the rat race for fame, money and success. We all run for it, we can’t deny this. And we know we gotta get that for survival, especially the money thing. I am not so materialistic but that’s a truth we can’t deny. We have some predefined benchmarks to achieve, which is why this race becomes necessary but again, it’s evil because it robs us of our peace and of those small moments of joy. It is like every other thing in the worldly life, which is a necessary evil. But we do have to eat, and for that we are killing an organism, even if its a plant. Its again a necessary evil.
