Story of a lost journalist

I don’t like but I do

Filed under: poem — Cris @ 02:43

(Dedicated to a dear friend talking to whom I was inspired to write this)

I don’t like darkness
But I like nights

I don’t like sun rays
But I like its warmth

I don’t like loneliness
But I like going on a date with myself

I don’t like speed
But I like the air it brings

I don’t like heights
But I like the view it gives

I don’t like pain
But I like the love that brings it

I don’t like bad
But I like the good that kills it

I don’t like lies
But I like the truth that defeats it

I don’t like hypocrisy
But I like the honesty that exposes it

I don’t like jealousy
But I like the integrity that belittles it

I don’t like sadness
But I like the braveness that buries it

I don’t like fights
But I like to agree to disagree

I don’t like childishness
But I like the innocence that puts it to shame

I don’t like technology
But I like the word it brings from a distant dear

I don’t like death
But I like the life that makes it worth the end

I don’t like violence
But I like you πŸ™‚



  1. Huhuuuuuu….liked it πŸ™‚

    • Akshaya: Err I should have mentioned, the last two lines are dedicated to the friend I was inspired from. In fact it was these lines I told in a conversation that made me cook up the rest.

  5. I dont like being complicated
    Because it spoils the beauty of being simple.

    Simply beautiful.

  6. That was a nice sequence. Every other two line is a quotable quote. But the ending “I don’t” is a little confusing. πŸ˜€

    • Anand: Hehe it was two lines from a conversation. I thought I will keep it with the rest πŸ™‚
