A MIRROR ! (poem)

”SEEK FIRSTLY TO UNDERSTAND AND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD !”

(Text)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Amid Priorities
In Life And Art/
Amongst The Many/Who Are Very Own/Inside The Self/Of One’s Own/
Life Is Beating Down/
Life Is Seeking Renown.

Between/
Memories And Desires/
Falls A Shadow/
Dark And Impregnable/

We Live In Shadows!
We Are Condemned To Be A Spy Or A Chaser Of Shadows: Countless Yet Only One!
/
Where There Is No Shadow/There Is No Life!/Light Is/Because Shadow Is/
Life Is/Because Shadow Is!/

Our Bodies May Have Language/Conveying Things/That Our Tongues Can’t !/
But, /
Our Soul Has No Language/It Exists In /Surrender And Silence!/
A Mirror Has No Speech/Only Reflections/Impartial And True/To Be Judgemental In Life/An Act Of Utter Ingratitude!/Existence Whispers /In Silence!
Memories Ruffle Feathers/A Few And A Far/
Desires Born And Die/In Solitude And/ With A Sigh!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
