The Devil and the Clown

In life, as we face our day to day living, we meet people who make us happy by saying jokes to the extent that we call them as clowns. On the other hand, we also meet people who at times, think negative about us or even hope that something bad may happen on us. When those negative ideas/thinking are said on our face, we consider them as devils.

In marine life, there are also clowns and there are devils. Just look.

In reality, these marine fishes, are not really clowns or devils when they show their
characteristics. And I wonder why they were given those names.
Same with people, though a person may be a clown, be beware, he/she may turn devil in the end. Or a bad person may look devilish but we may not be sure. For behind those negative acts, she/he may have a good heart in the end.
To know whether a person has bad or good intentions is really not an easy task. It really takes time for us to know a person. Therefore, we should not make judgements based on appearance and limited knowledge about a particular person.

"don't judge a book for its cover". I've known that adage when I was a little boy still and I know it is true. Appearances can really be deceiving.

This is a nice fish story Ms. Luchie and we all can learn a thing or two from here. The way you wrote it is like a worthy parable that tells us to be cautious of how appearances are deceiving and often, things are not what they appear to be at first.

Luchie said...

That is true, Rolly and Major Tom. At times, appearances can really be deceiving.

in other words, don't judge the book by its cover. or as what melanie rephrased, don't judge my brother, he's not a book. hehe...

sa akin naman luchie, i believe that there is a devil and an angel and yes even a clown in us... some people draws out the good in you some the bad side... you're lucky if there are more people that draws the good in you :-)
