A N G E R, The Death of Reason - A Short Story

A carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop. Unknowingly, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop before the lock up.
The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and accidentally bumped into a double-edged metal axe and got slightly injured.
In anger and seeking revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? The cobra began to bleed in her mouth.
Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried its best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself very tight around the blades.
The next day, when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a seriously injured, dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades.

The cobra died not because of someone's doing but faced these consequences merely because of its anger and wrath. Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as time passes by, we realize that we have caused more harm to ourselves.
For a happy life, it’s best we learn to ignore and overlook certain things, people, incidents, affairs and matters. It is not necessary to react to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding or reacting to.

Let us Treat people with kindness even if they hurt you.
People that show no inclination to change, are best handled with silence and prayer.
THIS is really a touching story and could help us take some good decisions.

Dear GOD, 
If I hurt someone, 
grant me the humility 
and courage to ask for forgiveness.
