DEFENCE MECHANISM

Man is a clever creature
Devise new means of defence
Develop habits and change nature
To protect self, he creates fence
Some of the tricks, let’s mention
Postponing the consequences cleverly
Acting out and making mockery
Trivializing the matters
With peers he chatters
Diverting attention
Through creative expression
Making the matter sublime
Making painting, writing rhyme
Man is same throughout all seasons
Creates and manifests reasons
Compares with example
To make life simple
With boss he murmurs
With peers he humours
Adopting a method of denial 
Avoiding reality, giving fantasy a trial
Making the situation look normal
Distorting the facts and making more informal
Dissociation from the issues and isolation
Creating a world of his own imagination
Making excuses and giving rationalization
Using suppression to dispel emotion
Comforting self with positive anticipation
Creating new identification for expression
Blaming others for negative projection
There are many to use and to explore
Sailing oneself from the sea of anxiety
To the shore of comfort and gaiety

INTROSCPECTION



The best means for self help
Inner peace and growth of self
Introspection, its introspection
Looking to self to find reason
Liberating the self from prison
Prison of Selfishness
The mess of ideas and nothing less
There is always a safe way
Mould your ideas, mind is like clay
Create an idol of your choice
Listen to your deep inner voice
Imagination has great power
The great feat is done in an hour
Keep away from counter accusation
Listen to elders and peers suggestion
Think before you react
Act in the true spirit of act
When the intention is pure
You can be sure
Of the subsequent consequences
Avoid before it become offences
Introspection is an art
To learn you must start
Introspection is also science
The science of conscience
For introspection, you don’t need silence
But a mind ready to look through lens
The lens of reason and unbiased thinking
Looking from others perspective and weighing
The acts and deeds you accomplish
Introspect results before you finish
