Everyone should read it... amazing insight!

If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Bye: the easiest word to say

splitscreen wave hand
The feeling is amazingly overwhelming. You think how its gonna be from tomorrow without these people around you. And hardly have you thought enough when you want to withdraw from the thought because it is painful. But you know you must think about it today or tomorrow.

You try to remember how it was when you said bye the last time. You suddenly remember that how you did not feel anything till after a week when the feeling sank in and then you felt asphyxiated by it. You had then wished that why did this feeling not come when i was around those who I wished adieu without feelings.

As they say "be careful what you wish for, for you might just be granted your wish". This time the feeling sinks in when you are about to part. You realise the part each and everyone plays in your life , suddenly. You know that you are going to remember the people when you hear songs that are automatically associated to each of them individually by your unconsciousness. Then you won't be able to hear those songs for few days and eventually would not be bored by those songs even when played in loop for the whole day.

These thoughts could never ever be described and they try to blow you up from inside. your body resists blowing up with your throat feeling the pressure lump, but your eyes give in and the tears leak out. Then you begin to part and you are worried because you don't know what you are going to do as the last thing between you and your friends.

Suddenly the word comes to your rescue naturally. It eases the pain and makes your parting just another among the infinite partings in the universe's time and space. Bye and a wave of hand. It's so cliched yet so apt.

A hug , a "bye" and a wave!
