Be From False Mercy Free - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

If pain there’s in love, be from such love free,
‘Fulcrum I’m of all’, be from such whims free.
Both yes and no do bind— to near and dear,
Be from fens of anticipations free.
Sticking to which whatso makes little sense,
Be from dos and don’ts, rules and reins free.
Malls, golden dreams sparkle in be-robbed eyes,
Be from such glares, mirages and mires free.
From all ostrich-like fears, crocodile tears,
Face life’s truth, be from false truth free.
They often wearing heart on sleeves meet us,
Be from sentimental ho hums free.
If thou hast not met thee at soul’s leisure,
Be from lay faiths and false mercy free.
