Let not any evil
I died after a rich, joyful, life in the world.
Soon with my accounts I was called by God,
To settle my debts and dues. I appeared
And proudly read out, my many a big deed
“Son! My concern for you hasn’t
ended with my death.
Without fail, every day and night
I watch your career path.
I bow to your soul with deep-seated reverence
For, you showed me what is a leader’s greatness.
With natural grace you opted for death for you
While saving all others, proving your captaincy true!
I am a man like you,
one in bones, flesh and blood
With all the same six senses,
and similar thoughts in my head,
The deep old wound in your heart
Which you are unable to heal despite
Therapies known as the best,
Was caused by the arrows I shot.
When you wash my sore and wipe my tears,
Some on-lookers are calling you 'foolish ass’.
Forgive them my friend, these unlearned haven’t read
For many years I’ve been dreaming
all through my wakeful time,
Till you shook me up and asked
what’s the use of every dream.
