Trapped in violet jar
Insidious thoughts bottled
Naked truth prevails
Stagnant life is death
Unbottled emotions die
Crystal clear tears
We are all sometimes trapped in the stagnant phase of life, where nothing seems to change for the better. All the hard work shows no fruit. That sends us to this state of mind where we do nothing. The negative thoughts hiding in our head kills us like slow poison. After a while, in spite of the trap being lifted up, we get so comfortable and accustomed in the little cocoon we've built for ourselves, we refuse to grow. We can see the world outside our bubble and wish to be a part of it. But it just remains a wish, we do not make efforts as little as picking a needle and bursting the bubble! We let our dreams grow old and die along with us, the slow death that they don't deserve. They deserve to be fulfilled.
A wise person will take that step and jump out of the jar while the foolish will still sit inside it moaning over what if he was outside. No magic is going to transport you outta your lil jar, unless you put efforts and stand on your own feet and climb out. Else all you'll be left with is a jar full of your own crystal clear tears, in which you will someday drown and die!
