A Bird, A Cage And Freedom



Have taken a bird out from its cage,

it remains to take the cage out from its mind.

On unrequited love:

What I had lost was never mine;

but she had lost what was hers and only hers.

The Beauty And The Beast


Surely knowing thorns would take the blame,

many a time,

it’s flowers that quietly cause/deliver the hurt.



Mothers-In-Law, Pls Excuse

A real meanie:

To assess how much her sons-in-law love her,

one day a mother-in-law jumped into a river.

One of the three sons-in-law jumped in right away and rescued her.

She rewarded him with a car.

On the following day, she jumped again into the river.

The second son-in-law jumped in this time and brought her back safe.

He got a bike for his rescue act.

On the third day the lady jumped once again into the river.

The third son-in-law, thinking he would get a cycle, did not move an inch.

The poor lady was drowned.

On the fourth day, however, he was surprised to receive a brand new BMW.

Pretty wierd, how did he…

The benefactor turned out to be his father-in-law!!
