A Poem by Nayan

What is Truth to a person? Does it vary for someone else? And if so, does one person accept another's ? If not, what should one with a different truth do?


Keep your Truth to yourself -
My Friend!
People only accept their own!

Pray -
That your Truth is His’!
As His’ is the only ray -
Else all is clay!

Not what you want -
Is what you can hold!
Not what they don’t think -
Is what they shouldn’t do!

Blessed believe you are -
You can think that their mind cannot!
Cursed conceive you are -
You want do that you reach cannot!

Blessed believe they are -
They have the powers that they can do!
Cursed conceive they are -
They never think that they should do!

Let them do -
What you can conceive!
And Let you think -
What they should do!

No, do not Pray -
That your Truth is His’!
But Pray -
That His’ Truth becomes theirs’!

Author's Note

I conceived the idea of this poem after hearing the words of a differently-abled person who could not walk! -- "Sir, I cannot walk, but I have designed a very low-cost wheelchair that people like me can use. A few poor people like me are using it too! But I often think why God did give me such thinking, though not the resource or powers to achieve it for many? But people with powers and resource - Why such thought never comes in their minds?"

I salute that person with this offering!

This was very interesting.
My favorite part of the poem was:

"Blessed believe they are -
They have the powers that they can do!
Cursed conceive they are -
They never think that they should do!"

Truth and Lie are relative - this I agree with you :). But what I do not agree is that Truth is relevant only to the victor!
