Six Word Story:
Much like fire, ice burns too.
About This Six Word Story:
I wanted to talk a little bit about todays six word story because it relates to yesterdays poem that I posted. So, this six word story is actually a condensed version of a poem I am saving for the poetry book I am currently writing. And the reason it is related to the poem is because it’s about the future and the past. Just like my poem.
In the poem I talked about how I felt sadness in letting go of some parts of me after growing up. And it’s true, I have changed and some things I do miss. But just like working about the future can be toxic, living in the past can be toxic too. Of course, I will miss those parts of me that I left in the past but holding on to them, mourning for them does me no good in the present. The present is what I need to concentrate on.
It’s funny, I had no post planned for today and was having no luck thinking of one. But then I was lying in bed, staring at the ceiling and this just came to me. Like an epiphany. I guess my mind wanted to remind me of my own poem and how it related to my current feelings. Our brain is an interesting thing.

I’m excited you are writing a book of poetry.
Thank you so much.
You’re clearly in a contemplative stage, Pooja… I hope it takes you somewhere you want to be! And good luck with the poetry book!
Thank you, I think the stage is actually helping with the book lol!
I read it, enjoyed, thank you 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂
If you live in the past, you are depressed,
if you live in the future, you are anxious,
if you live in the present you are at peace.
See that fire in the ice, don’t you think it’s nice?
Love your poetic edition, this one feels more RnB than rap though.
Lol you’re welcome.
There is no use living in the past, or pining for the future. Life is the present moment, and we must train ourselves to live in the present moment, and enjoy it to the fullest. Life is neither past nor future. One is gone, and the other is uncertain, so there is no use thinking about these. The only reality is the present. The more we reconcile with this reality, the more we will be happy.
Stay happy and keep writing, Pooja.
Yes, the present is all that matters. Thanks so much.
Concise words of wisdom
Thank you so much.
Short and powerful.
All the best on your book Pooja. It’s lovely how you have expressed letting go of the past and embracing the future into a perfect present. 🤍
Thanks so much! 💖
Pleasure always Pooja.
Sometimes I have nothing to say (But well, you will hear from me soon).
I just wanted to be here to show my support to my favorite blogger.
I wish you find the sunshine soon dear friend.
Thanks, I really appreciate that.
(Did you mean “like” instead of “life”?)
I’m wondering that too.. Thanks for asking..
Lol yes, it’s supposed to be like
Aha… makes sense now totally! 💞
I actually read that ‘like’😅
Realised it now!
Lol yes, I edited it. Thanks.
Sure thing! And I do love it! It’s great how you can put so much meaning into these very short six-word stories 😊
Thanks so much 😊
Haha, staring at the ceiling is also my favorite activity when I have nothing to write for the day. And it is such a good thing to write about the fact that one has nothing to write for the time being. I’ve learned it. To write about “nothing to write” is the best way to deal with it. Wish you have a great time writing your poems since you have a lot to share.
Thanks so much. Lol, yes sometimes we have to write about having nothing to write.
I am starting to imagine that your passion is setting ice on fire…
It may just be lol.
My six word story. “I try something, i fail miserably!” that incapsulate pretty much my life until now!
Well, keep trying eventually something will work out!
Lion approaching now, who eats tomorrow?
Probably just one…
Fire and ice are polar opposites. Each can destroy the other. The solution is to use each of them depending on the situation.
Yes, and not just focus on one.
I just love how you give your articles a personal touch by sharing your thoughts and feelings, as for me I really don’t have any past memories that I care to remember. Most of them are more like nightmares, but today life is so much better and I am thankful for where I am in my life right now
Thank you so much. I am so glad that your life is better now and I hope it remains that way.
It is a daily challenge, but well woth the extra effort to be happy
Some memories maybe catharsis and caustic.
Yes, some can be.
That’s a powerful six words! Nice!
Thank you so much!
Excited about your poetry book!!!
Loved the SWS, and got the lesson too.
I have this bad habit of living in either the past or the future, all the time. Have to work on that!!!
Thank you so much! I have that habit too but working on getting better at living in the present.
Wish you all the best!!!!
Ice; tried to light it, NOPE! 😂😎🙃
Try harder 😂
Pooja this is AWESOME!!!!!!! Sounds like an amazing book title.
Thank you so much!!
Anyone who doesn’t agree that ice burns should try holding onto a piece of dry ice.
Absolutely, it burns so bad after a few seconds.
Like fire 🤣🤣.
Love it 🤍
Thank you 😊
This is really good! I wish I had written this one. lol
“Fire consumes. Ice can burn forever.”
Lol thank you. And I really like yours too.
I enjoyed this six word story. I think it’s great that you’re working on a book of poetry!
Thanks so much!
