The Blind Beggar

The Blind Beggar

2 mins 6.7K 2 mins 6.7K

A Blind beggar came down from clouds

Hearing my cries, And asked for money

As I gave him some

"You helped a beggar, Let me help one now,"

He said...

"What can you do to help me? You are just a beggar and blind"

He laughed, "Exactly, I am Blind I don't cry

I can only receive 

I have nothing to give you, I am free of everything"

"I am depressed and torn apart

I want to do something but don't know what and how"

"Well that's a simple problem 

With a complex solution

Embrace it!"

"How can I Embrace the chaos in my family?

How can I Embrace the ferocious blows of destiny?"

He laughed again, This time harder

"So you want God instead of you to do it?"

"I am not calling God for embracing it

But to help me in disgracing the disgrace"

At this he got angry-

"You are calling it for spreading more disgrace

Do you really think you will be better

In a world with more disgrace than there already is!

You are calling it 

Because you fear to lose

Because you fear you can't save

Because you fear Living itself

Maybe that's why you are so eager to meet it.

Go ahead be the beggar of your own life

Put the weight of your strife

On someone else or everyone else

And Then cry when they fail because of your absence

Welcome to the Beggar's Club!"

And then he vanished into the clouds again.

Seeing the weather improve, I decided to go home

It was time to return home.

But I was happy

I was not empty handed now, 

From now, not a beggar.
