Riddle Me This, Riddle Me That...

Here's a set of 4 riddles created by Keshi. Yes I'm on a mission to test your analytical skills on a personal level ;-). No you don't have to be a master of life or a great philosopher to get it right. It's only a matter of having some fun in a game with a touch of reality. All you have to do is try and solve these riddles to the best of your abilities. After all, the riddles were written by a mere mortal herself :). clue: They are all 1 word answers. *great clue there ha Keshi!;-)* All the best! You don't have to get them all right, but if you do, you'll have a surprise in the next post ;-).

1. You try to drop me, but I refuse to be dropped. You try to please me, and I can never get enough. You try to leave me, but I make you leave others. You try to climb on me, but I sit on top of you. You give in to my desires and lick my feet. I am the hardest to tame, the easiest to feel and I hurt the most even when I'm slightly shattered. So, you better take good care of me! Cos I think I'm the most 'important' thing about you, yes I am! What am I?

2. I know that I have so much potential. I am the only way people can truly be happy. By giving me to others and to themselves, I know people would finally set themselves free. I sound so easy to acquire, but in real I am the hardest thing to find and to implement. I wish more people truly understood me though, for I know that if I am utilised to my utmost potential, I can heal and even prevent alot of misunderstandings and misdeeds. I sit here waiting to be picked up by all of you. What am I?

3. I don't let anyone move on. Cos I believe in burning in raging flames. I believe in carrying on with the past somehow. I have a neverending love affair with the past. I won't let you see the present or the future. I wish to remain in what happened and not in what should happen next. Forget about forgetting, indulge in me! I won't let you progress cos I thrive in my own world...I love to see smoke and ashes of what was once fresh and lively. I can destroy everything for you as long as you hold on to me and never let go.
What am I?

4. If you find me under most situations, then you're really lucky. Take me seriously and your life will be alot less serious...yes you heard that right! Some people make good use of me, some others use me to get across a real message and some others misuse me in bad taste. I can be the best motivator even on your darkest day. But it's amazing how most people don't bother to call on me, not even once in a while although I'm free and available all the time. I'm a sense in you that you can tickle your way up to good health and a well-lived life. What am I?

Have a go. Answers and top solvers (getting all 4 answers right) will be announced in the next post. Also, do tell me which one was your favourite out of the 4. Now let's see what comes out of this post. I cant wait to read all the comments. ;-)

On other news, right now I'm 6 feet from the 'edge'. Last week I had a moment where after reading an email, my coffee and brekky suddenly went cold. Cos I couldn't eat anymore...I was shattered. But later on, that email itself made a revolution inside my head...it had lead me to contemplate a major change in my life - something that would make me shed what I'm 'used to', and tap into 'bettering' my life. So, that means even something that makes you instantly lose your appetite can be a the trigger for a hidden change that's waiting to happen...a good change. Sometimes disappointments, offense and rejection are the best motivators in life. They make you go and do things that you've never even imagined doing. They give you a heads up on new horizons waiting to be conquered. M
aybe 6 feet ain't so far down then? I strongly believe there's always something new to discover from every turn-off, every bad news, every riddle & every lost track, and I know I will find a new path somehow...I'll solve it. Always have faith in yourself. Now don't forget the above riddles, catch ya all soon! ;-)

i m wonder how or where u find always something new to talk about ... for the past 5 years my god Keshi u rock at it, i m feeling so boring when i read myself after that. Listen i m soo bad at getting french riddles so english riddles even worst!!! I feel ashamed to give answers, i could say communication is the word for n 2 and past is the word for n 3 but it is just a wild guess, will be looking for the answer.
PS: let me know if u need a rope or live saver jacket cz i don t want u to fall over that edge :)

Tarun said...

*Confession time* : I am not good with all riddles and all, my analytical skills are limited to cricket,so if the answer make u feel that i am a cracked nut then tehre is probably more than an element of truth in that.


Personally only unexpected things/accidents (call it what u want) can only truly chnage or be life changging moments.

I am sure email wasnt an accident.
ANyways I will get a better grip of the situation.

Utopia said...

I so know how that feels. I think failure can be the biggets motivator. :D
The first one if LOVE and the last one HUMOUR.

Vaisakh P S said...


Yeah you are right. answers to all riddles depends on a person's perspective of life.

I will solve your riddles later but i am just going to copy your quote, "Sometimes disappointments, offense and rejection are the best motivators in life. They make you go and do things that you've never even imagined doing. They give you a heads up on new horizons waiting to be conquered." It has motivated me a lot as i was going through low phase.Thanks. Keep writing and motivating others.

Nora said...

Shachi said...

1. Ego
2. Love.
3. Anger/Hatred/Being Jealous
4. Humor.

There could be other interpretations as well, but these are today's answers :)

Beach Bum said...

I guess ego is the first one though I'm terrible at any kind of riddle. That circuit in my brain is burned out.

Truth might be the second one, although I like some of the other answers people have given.

For the third one I guess memories?

The fourth one I think is humor. But like I said earlier, I'm terrible at this stuff.
