Two things always happen – Poem #2 – npm2019

When you surrender to a story
two things happen
one, the story becomes a fact for you
other, you start hating people who question it

When you reject a story
two things again happen
one, the story loses its essence
other, you look down upon the one who tells it

Every time a story is told
two things happen
one, you surrender to it
other, you reject it..

And I wonder where those people have gone
who used to enjoy stories
without surrendering to it
without rejecting it..
where did those people go…?
