BETWEEN THE TWO...


Between the right and the wrong
I too try to draw a line
But it goes zigzagging
And I retreat to a shady corner to hide.

Between the good and the evil
I too dare to trace a wall
But it is too tall for me to see beyond
And I debase to a knave laughed at by all.

Now it is time for introspection-
With no doctrines or scriptures
Too symbolic to be ignored by many
I don`t need to be meta morphed into another Buddha.

But between the right and the wrong
Now I can see the line drawn by others thinning out,
Between the the good and the evil
I can see the sky tall wall crumbling.....

Am I seeing illusions
Or am I being enlightened just for a difference?

    The erosion in conventional ethical values has indeed thinned out. the dividing line between good and evil, between right and wrong is no more determined on ethical values we cherish.
    An excellent write, Dinesh. Thanks for share. (Report) Reply

    To be truly good is not an easy road to take, but it brings sunshine that dances with our heart and soul to a tune that uplifts and fulfills our purpose and leaves our mark that flourishes in any storm. But we are not perfect and we learn from our mistakes and we understand why at times we fail to do the right thing, we can always change and put it right! Inspired write! (Report) Reply

    Introspection is helpful but too much can be depressing. Good visual analogies in your poem. (Report) Reply

    Not always easy to discern the dividing line between right and wrong, there is always a grey area. A fine write Dinesh. (Report) Reply

    It is some realization to distinguish between the two. The line between is too thin. The wall seems to crumble. Beautiful thoughts expressed in the poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    My first read of the day. Enjoyed it. We may not become Buddha or Jesus still we need to draw lines for our own peace. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
