Bitter truth


Life is poetry
Says the poet

Same way the sage says
Life is meditation

but she never goes
in rhymes

no rhythm she finds
when she sings

her own songs
and when a sage seeks

truth in seclusion
but life

finds truth in deeds
which can not be

confined
in meter and foot

but through seductive schemes
lies of the great lies can be spread

truth is life
life is truth

which upholds them
that is beauty

rest of all
are bogus

a hood winking
emotional blackmailing

under well put rhetoric
well churned out fallacy of logic.
