Insist On Truth - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Let us insist on truth
If not wholly but partial untruth
To live on with little comfort
Life in turmoil but still peace in short

We are accustomed
And have welcomed
The shortcomings in everybody
As poor human being is always needy

To be perfect and extra ordinary
Is not at all needed and is necessary
How can you survive while dealing?
It is really handicap and is general feeling

We may talk of high ideals
We may project good unreal things
In fact it is a deceptive tactic
No where it has any basic

Let any one reflect in mirror
Find out what all he did with errors
Most of the life was based on lies
Despite his presentation of no lies

Yes we have one powerful weapon
We go for prayers and move on
Ask for blessings and encouragement
Where thee is room for only resentment
