Veni, vidi, vici


AtoZ2019V

Its April of 2019 and Day 22 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: veni, vidi, vici
Language: Latin
Meaning: I came, I saw, I conquered

Poem:
they will pull you down,
under estimate,
tell you there’s no path,
no math,
no sense expertise,
non sense sugar grease.
your success story:
veni, vidi, vici.

Interpretation:
Many a times, we lack with in-house support. The grass is always greener on the other side. Success needs a lot from “I”.

Status quo


AtoZ2019S

Its April of 2019 and Day 19 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: status quo
Language: Latin
Meaning: the existing state of affairs (particularly with regard to social or political issues)

Poem:
sky isn’t always  blue,
stick doesn’t exactly glue,
not all heroes wear cape,
dreams aren’t only for sleep,
good is conditional,
definitions are flawed.
are we still talking,
of status quo?

Interpretation:
The status quo should be a guideline. Not a mandate. It must be an inspiration. Not a path way.

Reductio ad absurdum


AtoZ2019R

Its April of 2019 and Day 18 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: reductio ad absurdum
Language: Latin
Meaning: a method of disproving a premise by showing that its logical conclusion is absurd (example: the earth cannot be flat; otherwise, we would find people falling off the edge)

Poem:
it’s an inspiring world.
memes for topper,
trolls for hard work,
mocks from hater,
chatters from jealous,
ridicules from unfit.
now, haters will call this,
reduction ad absurdum.

Interpretation:
The poem presents the irony of modern society. To thrive, one needs to be focused towards goal and keep the unwanted away.

Per se

With time, we gather a lot around us. We should know that we smell, what we collect and what we are!

Ne plus ultra

Poem:
sun doesn’t make,
an ice sculpture,
fire doesn’t play,
with an ice sculpture,
oven doesn’t cook,
an ice sculpture,
ne plus ultra, of,
doesn’t.

Interpretation:
This poem, got me thinking. It’s the ending. After all, life is all about what we see and appreciate in the crowd. Hence, I decided to go with ‘doesn’t’. Not the ‘ice sculpture’ but ‘doesn’t’.

The rain current can wash away a lot of things. Only a stronger foundation can sustain. The roots are to be grounded firm and strong. (Now that applies to a lot of things!)

Model theory says that when two people work equally hard, luck plays the role putting one second. Then there is consolatory third. Let’s not talk of the rest. Even the world cuts it short to etc.
