How? - Poem by vimal ramchandra

How hollow is Hollowness?
Holding your palm against your heart,
the silence you hear between each heart beat...
Is the answer.

How deep is Depth?
Facing your reflection in the mirror,
look into your own eyes for a while,
the feeling of being lost.
Is the answer.

How painful is Pain?
Thinking of a time long gone by,
the eyes that dampen and still, ask a question 'Why? '
Is the answer...

How weak is Weakness?
To have the power of knowledge,
yet kneel down, apologizing for the ignorance of being a human.
Is the answer....

How strong is Strength?
The numerous wounds that scar your soul,
and it's still easy to smile.
Is the answer....

How thoughtful is a Thought?
Being surrounded by a million souls,
Yet finding yourself, faraway and alone.
Is the answer....

How soulful is a Soul?
Deeds done known, unknown, intentional, unintentional,
A conscience that pinches you at the wrong one's.
Is the answer...

How godly is God?
Life's every trial, every pain, every fall,
Every struggle, every tear shed..,
The presence of Goodness...
The power of Belief...
The will to Survive...
The strength to Hope...
Is the answer.....
