Rookie - 65 Points (12-06-1958 / Nellore, Andhra Pradesh)


In search of freedom; how strange
Waves are running away from oceans
Rays are running away from light
Can they ever sever from their founts?

Fastened are lives, likewise
One and all in this universe
To the unraveled hidden source
Yet humans run in nescience
Towards illusory independence

Stop your sprint dear straying mortals
Start searching your inner souls
Not really fathoms deep to grope
Well nigh the ultimate free rein
In the wellspring! The Mighty Divine! !

    The answers (and freedom) are within. What is that song -'Looking for love in all the wrong places.....' It's time to wake up and listen to that voice within that guides all mankind if he will only take the time to listen. Love is within all of us and opens the door to freedom if we choose. It's up to us to make that choice. Another powerful piece, Sathya.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
