Wisdom Is The Light - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Fizzles out the darkness
when dawn descends
Fades out the day light
invaded by darkness
In between, the day and night
rules the entire universe
The day is marked
with the arrival of the Sun
The night is known
with or without the moon
Observed closely it seems
darkness lives for ever
engrossing this universe
Temporary is the light
from Sun or Moon
Eternal is the darkness
spreading over the vacuum
Applicable is the same
for human lives
Illusion is the eternal
darkness engraving
the human minds
Wisdom is the stream
of light to glow them bright
Apply the wisdom
Avoid the illusion!
