I Learn - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni
Even if I do not desire to do so;
Learning is an on-going not so very mysterious an exertion.
I know it as an activity of the mind,
A rapid movement that proceeds
Through a corrugated maze
Cast by the different states of awareness
That attempt to locate the original glow
Lost in the crowd of reflected lights;
I am involved in work
Because work is an exertion of the body;
Born of the mind and word.
But, I am born of the flames that leap and sizzle.
And, though I remain indifferent
Because I am always awake I cannot avoid seeing;
Such is my exertion. I do not gather dust.
My speech is rich because of words meant for me;
Those are the words that create things and events, and the entire world.
