I confess

I confess:
I always try to escape,
I do lie.

I confess:
I am never guilty,
I never regret.


I confess:
I always try to escape,
I am never guilty.

I confess:
I do lie,
I never regret.

I know I can never be professional.

confession is the result of regret & guilt feeling. If you are not regret then why you are cofessing????????

LOL :)

It could sound rude, but your posts, however serious they are, do make me atleast smile. :)

How about this:

I confess..
I am always guilty..
I never try to escape..

I confess..
I never lie..
I do regret..

It's after all some word play. ;) You just swap the lines, I do it with words too ;)

I hope, I didnt hurt you! :)

alex said...

That sound good!

Prakhar: Thank you!

Alex: If you go as per the first combination of words you might feel that I am not confessing. But the second clearly says that I am confessing. I am confessing two things. First that I always try to escape and second that I do lie. Got it?

And you ask why I wrote the same thing in two different ways. It is show the confusion of a character that is struggling to understand what is right and what is wrong and how it affects his expression.

Sands: Smile in the sense? :)

I liked your swapping thing however I would like to explain:

I confess I am always guilty I never try to escape means I am guilty and I never try to escape from that guilt. Means in one sense you are accepting that you are guilty and you don't want a way out of it.

I confess I never lie I do regret means I never lie and at the same time I do regret. Means you regret that you are unable to lie.

Is it so?

I couldn't get it .... will come back. But what abt the pic and "I know I can never be professional" .. what does this signifies....

Sands | കരിങ്കല്ല് said...



Smile in the sense... I just smile. But I can't explain why!! :(

Your explanation is right on the target.

For the first one (guilty and not escape), if you think something negative, I have the explanation in the book Shantaram. [Do read it if you haven't yet]


PS: Even this was something like *deep inside the core*. I thought really about this, only after you did explain. (But I somehow knew that you'd do that) :)

i confess:
i didnt understand...

A Liberated Soul said...

Alex: :)

Ria: Yes! :)

Shekar: Thank you!

Ashu: It is very simple. Try reading one more time. Please! :)

Nitin: It could be a doctor who is confessing. Could it be? What say?

Sands: To be honest, I am very happy that you are smiling whenever you read my posts. Whatever the reason is, don't mention :) I have not read the book Shantaram. Who is the author?

Mayz: Please read the explanation I have given to Alex above. I am sorry to confuse you :(

Well, I don't believe your explanation on picture and that professional thing.

It means something else; I could be wrong!


PS: Stethoscopes are used to know heart-beats. {Do you think, I have understood something?}

Or am I still in dark? :)

Nitin said...

I gave up .. I couldn't get that missing link b/w confession ...pic and profession .. and neither the confession part... there is something which is not striking me at all.. Lib if possible can u plz explain the full post in detail... ( I couldn't get the explanation u have already given)

Ashu said...

heartbeaps said...

hmmmn ... the other side of the coin ... the only thing that is more clear is that you know you can never be a professional ... what went wrong ? wht were u thinking ?

A Liberated Soul said...

Nitin: Hope you had a good weekend ;)

Sands: What does LOL mean?

Ashu: :)

Heartbeap: Being an emotional doctor and that too a heart specialist, I found it very difficult to fight my conscience especially on professionalism when it came to giving hope to my dying patients. Thats when I lied to escape from their hopeless looks. And thats exactly when I thought I should not feel guilty about it and never regret.

It was all part of imagination rather putting myself in a doctor's shoes. My basic idea was to express my feelings about guilt and lie and regret. That I did! The picture and the doctor was other ways for a second person, like a reader, to interpret in his or her own way.
