Why don’t Sharks have bones? 

Sharks are completely boneless. Instead of bones, sharks have skeletons made up of cartilage. A cartilage skeleton has its advantages: it is flexible, durable and light, and also heals faster than bone. That said, once a shark is out of water, the cartilage skeleton works against them. They can easily be crushed by their own body weight on land — because sharks lack rib cages, their weight isn’t supported out of water, and their bodies would collapse over time.

Serene

Nature is serene,

On her lap it’s peaceful,

Whenever i’m in her surroundings,

It’s blissfull.

Nature is shy,

As she won’t talk to me,

But she’s one good clue giver,

Everyday she whispers walk to me.

Nature is sancrosanct,

Do respect her,

She’ll provide you everything,

Don’t ever suspect her.

Nature is mother,

She cares for us,

Even If we harm her,

She’s always there for us.

When my tears dried..

When my tears dried, my heart died. 
The long way of learning is the simplest form of burning, 

People would put smile on faces in front of you but at back harsh cursing words,

Whenever my heart pains to feel like this, I cried. 

When my tears dried, my heart died. 

Life’s journey is not going to be easy one it’s the thing I learn, 

People will try to demotivate but what you want only you can earn, 

With burns on my heart and soul I still tried. 

When my tears dried, my heart died. 

Firstly I thought of it as true love but eventually I found that there’s nothing like it, 

The lies,gossiping,making fun of me behind my back was only a bullying treat, 

Still smiling everyday I greet them, coz each day it’s the new sunlight, 

So, when my tears dried, my heart died. 

Abode. 

I have loved you with all I can, 
You abode in my heart, 

Only your thoughts 💭  are running on my mind, 

Peace in my heart where can I find? 

You bewitched me, 

My senses are not working u see, 

Thinking one thing doing something 👉, 

And now I’m feeling a little less than trusting

You had me wishin’ we were

somethin’. 

B+

Daily routine is getting ready, 
For a better tomorrow be steady.

Abysmal thoughts run my mind, 

Negative thoughts 💭 one should rescind.

Abstaining from the negativity, 

I acceded to be with positivity.

Do not indulge in some absurd arguments, 

Will power, hard work and perseverance are life’s success determinant. 

One lose energy in accentuating, 

Then it’s development degradation  is perpetuating .
