If the conversation never ends,
If the tales last forever,
And if only one could whisper to the soul.
If silence could be shared,
If heartbeats could be heard,
If no words were required,
And if only one could read the story behind every glance.
If dreams could be shared,
If laughter reached the eyes,
If hopes could be hopeful,
And if only one could be true to the self.

Folklore in the form of stories, poems and songs have come down to us through words that are spoken and heard and because of that a lot of things in stories, myths, tales are altered to suit the changing times as per people’s sensibilities in that generation or to make it more acceptable to society or to make it suitable for children like done in Tales of Beedle the Bard in the Harry Potter series, not realizing that children are the ones who should be told the truth as they are the future and also because at first we hide the truth about life’s realities and hardships but when they grow up we expect them to understand all these truths and be mature when at first we were the ones hiding it from them, trying to protect them when ultimately they have to face them anyway.
Though today’s generation might learn things the hard way we too have a right to experience every single thing life has to offer and learn-through good or bad lessons. Elders try to protect us from all this saying they don’t want us to make the same mistakes they made but who really learns that way?! Who wants to learn that way?!(Though I agree sometimes we ought to!)
Whatever the way may be- we learn from others or our own mistakes-the point is to get up even if we fail by putting in use our own opinions, by taking our own decisions. Just as US President Mr. Barack Obama said in his Inaugural Address “Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again…”
