Flowers and Thorns

Stop that false poetry. Urged some. Wow! keep up the good writing said some others. The same poem, one sees it as a pretense, a false piece of writing. May be it is not a piece of literary work. But, no one can doubt the emotional sincerity. May be there is not much profound insight, but there is certain level of intensity. The “wow” people sensed it. Or may be they are just being consolatory.

In any case, it is what it is. One can try to improve upon something, but at the moment, it is what it is. Right? A flower is a flower and a thorn is a thorn. A butterfly is a butterfly and a caterpillar is a caterpillar.

People can perceive us and our work based on their experiences and knowledge. We can take the best part of their comments as advice to improve ourselves and move on to focus on the work. As long as one is genuine and true to one’s work, I know there is no applause needed from anyone. The process of work itself can be fulfilling. And who knows, one day the thorny critics may shower their flowery praises.
