Fate & stars


Putting blame on fate
I found problems in others
I remained but blind,
Time was cruel to tell me late
Fault was never with my stars.

    1. I remember reading story on your blog about a boy who standing on stool was watching or perhaps imagining his friends playing in garden. It’s been a long time and I liked reading it so very much.
      Can you please share a link of that post with me?

          1. As I read it again, could find so many places for edits and wrong tenses. He he.. (And I postponed them all to some time later.. 😛 )

            Thank you so much Madeeha. I am glad you remember the story. Feels good and happy.. 🙂

            1. A good writer always finds mistakes in his writing, he’s never satisfied and I being a sincere reader can also find this repition of the word used to in one paragraph 🙂
              but it happens and the thing which I like about your story is its theme, you have done justice to it.
              At that time I was reading Kite Runner, the book is my all time favourite and so is your story 🙂 🙂

  2. Ahh magical! There is an American movie called The Fault in Our Stars, have you ever seen it? I have not but your poem reminded me of it! 🙂


    1. Oh, yes I saw it. It’s based on a best selling novel which I haven’t read 🙂
      The acting is good and the production and direction is well. My sister liked reading the novel though!!
