The Stay Away Syndrome

We don't want to get into it.
Leave us out please.
It's not our business. It's between you.
We cannot take sides.

Most of us have said this at some point.
Some of us say it all the time.
And why not.
It is the safest way.
Why get involved?
Why be dragged and redragged and hassled?

Till one day,  something happens to us.
And we need support.
Someone to take sides.

And there are none.
The "Stay- away" syndrome sets in.
Fence-sitting becomes a virtue.

It is only then we realise that life is about having a point of view.
And a voice that says, Yes that is right and we will stand by it.
No matter what.

Takes some bit of courage.

But makes us stronger human beings.
Who are true to what we believe in.
