Fool

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 9; the ninth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.




I know it and yet,
I choose to be me.
I know that rainbows
and unicorns exist.
And you may laugh
at me for thinking so.
I know it and yet, 
I choose to believe
in myself and my beliefs.

I know it and yet,
I choose to be me.
I know that life 
is lovely and easy.
And you may scoff
at me for thinking so.
I know it and yet,
I choose to live
like I would live, forever.

I know it and yet,
I choose to be me.
I know of the world
and of it's crooked ways.
And yet, I choose to be.
I know of you
and your devious mind,
the cruel intentions,
And yet, I choose to be
Just another fool.

The knack of defiance,
The norms that I shun,
With my heart on my sleeve
and head on my shoulders,
I proclaim, myself to be,
Just another fool!

I must say that to the wise, life is a problem; to the fool, a solution. ;-)

Well written, Rashi!

PS: Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.

Superb take on the topic, Rashi! Loved the simple, yet profound poem...

Great going. All the Best for BATOM!

Lovely poem. Nice and sweet and so true.

A small feedback though - I felt that the refrain was too much for the size of the poem. Also I felt third stanza pattern did not go with pattern of first two - where you talk about your optimistic view and how you are not perturbed by world's opinion of your foolish optimism but in third there is nothing about your optimism.

Was out of town. So posting comment after BATON contest. My entry for contest was a poem too. Do check it out as and when you have time.
