Krishna In Crisis


Krishna in his last moments, is wracked with doubts and regrets
Though and 'Avatar' he was yet human, framed in freedom and constraints
A life full of fraud though with good intentions; his clan and dynasty was in shambles!
Was he always conscientious or deviant? He raves and rambles!
The great 'Mahabharat' he had violated many rules of war
To finish his opponents Bhishm, Karna Dron and Duryodhan
Cursed, perhaps rightly, by the bleeding heart of Gandhari, with her dead son
He and his yadava- clan met there nemesis, though Pandvas won the war.
His dalliance with Gopees, young and Senior, in play and 'Raas'
Large number of queens and grand palace
Was not fit for Yogi Krishna, Alas!
His life has been like a black and white pearl necklace.
But then I was using fraudulent tactics as a necessary device
To establish eternal values and 'Dharma'; and end vice
My love for man and specially woman was to teach them its true meaning and magic,
Courage and value, devotion, dance and music.
Krishna had a sense of peace, he felt justified
With innumerable gems in his 'Karma' and His great 'Bhagvad Geeta' he shed his human life, quite satisfied.
