My photo
Little Moments Of Bliss is a silhouette of a feeling that resides in my heart. A software engineer by degree, a writer at heart, and a teacher by profession, I'm all that I never thought I would be. Pretty pictures,a poem that blatantly refuses to rhyme, a text from a deranged friend, a sudden gesture of love, its these little things in life, that matter and sprinkle bliss. Grace the couch and share a cuppa!

Hope always whispers - Just one more try

A little hope always aids in times when things do not happen the way you want them to. When the love of your life doesn't love you back. When your best friend forgets those awesome moments spent together and walks away. When your grades are in danger. When crying is all you want to do this night. Just a little Hope.

The way the Greeks told it, Zeus put Prometheus and Epimetheus in charge of creating life on earth. Epimetheus made the animals, giving out bonuses like swiftness and strength and fur and wings. By the time Prometheus made man, all the best qualities had been given out. He settled for making them walk upright, and he gave them fire.

Zeus, pissed off, took it away. Man was unable to cook. Prometheus lit a torch from the sun and brought it to man again. To punish Prometheus, Zeus had him chained to a rock, where an eagle fed on his liver.

To punish man, Zeus created the first woman - Pandora - and gave her a gift, a box she was forbidden to open. Pandora's curiosity got the best of her, and one day, she opened that box. Out came plagues and misery and mischief and poverty and diseases. She managed to shut the lid tight before hope escaped. It's the only weapon man has been left with to fight others.

A little hope is sometimes all we have and want. Don't let it escape. Ever.
