Remember Me!!!

Remember me when I'm gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel them or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

- Christina Georgina Rossetti

Found this in a book I was reading. I just sat with it for a while. It is amazing to chance upon such a beauty. So I share this to make y'all smile...

Hey Mr. Hypocrite....

What they say is true
If you laugh, you have to cry,
Wounds, sometimes, stay afresh
No matter how hard you try.

But, today I'll tell you a story
About a boy, in love he was
This ain't your normal story
Behold, it defies all the laws

He professed his love for a maiden
This boy, he vouched that he'd die
If she ever left him alone
And that isn't something, about, you lie

So She believed him, but was bound
Away she was pulled, by those hefty chains
She fought back, she cared for his life
A friend whose, she wanted to, wipe away pains

An Angel, he had said she was
She felt guilty, for never could she ever be
Anything more than the friend she was
"Then", he said,"It's OK, Just stay with me."

But little did this femme de l'ignorance know
His true name was Mr. Hypocrite
The one who would seek her out
Only to slay her when he see fit.

I dare misquote a famous line, to say
"I'm here to bury Caesar, not praise him"
For that is what she decided to do
But he pleaded, "Sans vous, my life is grim"

The audacity of this boy was such
Her forgiveness, he would beg, that is
Then mock her back, once she turned
To be the hero parmi ses amis

So what should she call, Harvey or Two-Face,
This boy, who claims, it was he who created
The mess, that his life is known as today
De sympathie, for he is Lord Narcissus reincarnated

Born and Dead 14th, March

This morning at around 0100 hrs a person died. His body has been sent for autopsy although it has been said that he died of a Heart Attack. He turned 20 today. There are a lot of things that we have to learn from the reasons for his death.

Its 0000 hrs of 14th,March 2010. The teenager is brought out of his room by his friends to celebrate his birthday. In the usual style they want to make him cry just the way he did when he was born. So they bump him, then hug him and wish him a very happy and long life. An hour later the freshly not a teenager dies.

The boy goes to his room after celebrations and tries to mend his back coz it hurts from the infinite bumps he got. While he is lying there he finds it hard to breathe.....a hand constricting his heart not letting it do its job......he feels like his clothes are too tight and the fan can't blow enough air. He is drenched in sweat. He realises something is wrong and manages to call for help. His friends come to his room and see him lying on the bed struggling for every breath he takes. But they can only stand and watch ....... some didn't know even the symptoms of a heart attack.......while the some who knew didn't know CPR or any form of first aid.

In a panic they call the closest hospital requesting an ambulance stat. The bored and half asleep clerk at the hospital desk considers the situation and decides it isn't very he takes his sweet time to wake up the ambulance driver and finally send him to the scene. It took the ambulance 30 minutes to arrive at the scene which was hardly 2 kms away. All the while the boy was struggling for breath, hoping that help would arrive soon, wishing he could change so many things he did, wishing he could see his mom and dad one more time..........and then the calm......the bliss of not feeling anything..........the pain is gone ........and so are the memories.......

The ambulance finally arrives and the unconscious boy is taken to the hospital. On arrival there he is declared dead. The preliminary report suggests he died of a heart attack caused by severe physical trauma. To better ascertain the cause of death the body is sent for autopsy.

So why did this boy die???

Was it because the driver was too slow in driving?

Was it because the clerk was too sleepy or too unconcerned??

Was it because the friends couldn't recognize a heart attack or couldn't administer the proper first aid???


Was it because they decided that the boy deserved some physical trauma on his birthday??

And whatever the cause maybe, what of the boy's parents who were hoping to call him in the morning to wish him a happy proud that their son turned 20 today, on his way to success, studying in one of the most prestigious institutions of India.......What of them???

Unbelievably Hard to Love You .....But I Love You Anyways....

Everybody.......rock your body right......Backstreet's Back .....alright!!!

Although this genre of music is lost to us now, it sure feels great to revisit those innumerable fond memories that these songs bring back. Just thought I'll remind myself of a few such songs. I dunno if I can still sort them out as I like this better than that as they all sound awesome right now. So, I'll just stick to listing a few. Do remind me of any I might have missed.

#1 Love you anyways (Boyzone): I'm Delirious....Are you serious??....What goes on in your head I'm just Curious.........
(This is the first song on my mind because it just gets you so stuck on it. I couldn't shake it off even after 3 days, in short the very reason I'm blogging about this.)
#2 No Matter (Boyzone): I can't deny what I believe, I can't be what I'm not......What you believe is true........

#7 Larger than life (Backstreet Boys): All you people can't you see...can't you see....How your life's affecting our reality.......
#8 As long as you love me (Backstreet Boys): I don't care who you are....Where you're from....
