Who Am I

Who am I to whine and complain About things I cannot change, Nor think ill of those who obtain Who am I? I must admit I find it strange Some do not hesitate to cause pain To others, I think, in exchange For personal and political gain. I find other’s lives I cannot arrange So think of them having only half a brain. Who am I?

Yeah, pretty much so. I'm getting a lot of System errors, so many things I've commented on are lost....forever. PS must have some problem.

Nice thoughts and we constantly question our place and position in history and society! We live our lives and make a difference where we can but should try change things but leave people alone! If every person tries to re arrange the world as he would think fit, there will be chaos! but we can contribute to a collective thought and move it towards general goodness! Who am I? is one of the most spiritual questions! When you start thinking you might discover Advaitam! please read - the book of one

Krish, your comment and your read are so appreciated. I'm glad this little piece gave your some food for thought. That was its purpose, after all.

Nevertheless, some people are not shy about causing emotional or practical pain for personal or political gain, that's nice that you have an opposite view, have a great night, dear friend.
