In The Path Of Light - Poem by Amitava Sur

A virtue which never dulls or die
Standing as a patriarch all along so high,
What is truth is a truth only,
Can never be stained by any lie.

Permanently it persists as a bold and beauty
While lie is always so mean and a sly.
These two always distance each other
Maintaining a wide parallel line.

Truth is ever - lasting
Being so joyful with a gleam.
And lie, being so treacherous and mean,
Existing though but very short lived.

Truth shows the path towards
Liberation and ultimate peace of mind,
Finally connecting the soul
With the Absolute, divine.

Sticking to lie and negotiating it,
This life ends up
With all distress, miseries and pains.

What is truth is a truth only,
Can never be stained by any means.
Truth persists, truth exists
So bold and beautiful is this Truth.
Amitava (6.11.2015)

    Yes truth is truth only and truth holds true wisdom of trust. Finally connecting the soul
