Integration - Poem by Sankar Sarkar

I am the spark of fire
Come of the heaps of ashes
Of the deceased,
I am not afraid of death
I am ever momentary birth
Of the immortality,
I wake up in the song
Of the Great Time,
I am on running ever
My soul peeps into obscurity
Like a sword of grass

I am not a coward
To bow down at the feet of naked gods
My risen heart sustains the rhythm
Of the universe
Like the wave of ocean
I can break through the broken
For the new ever

I am I can be
If you don’t stand by me
I can’t wait for a while
Time is too cruel to shed tears
Time is too fast to get at
Time is too restless to console
I am on fighting and struggling
For upholding my essence
In the cradle of the debris

I never allow getting my soul defeated
I am seed of the eternity
To sprout anywhere,
My drop of blood can make
The flood of victory!
Every feeling of the thought
Can kindle the damp mind of nation:
Every realization
Every remonstration
Every contradiction
Like dust of soil
Hold the vast creation
I am among the all of it
However a bit!
Yet I am fit to beat prejudices
Vanity and barbarism,
To bring love to this world
You can never hurt me
And touch me
Beyond all touch and clash,
But I am in you with you
Even around you ever,
I am a bit of cause of the great cause
To cause this universe
Both diversity and conformity
Cause me to concern the integration
Of body and mind

    Truly, man is a bit of cause to the great cause, an integral part of the universe and you knowing the integrity in diversity struggle to maintain the integrity of body and mind.
    Loved reading the poem.

    This is an excellent poem on the all-pervading transcendental consciousness which is independent of the time and space. This is the ultimate reality. According to ancient Vedanta philosophy all life-forms including human being come out of this reality. This is the omniscient state that the poet describes here. I thank to the poet for sharing this beautiful piece of work. (Report) Reply

    On an atomic level things coexist on this level and time and eternity mesh together. In essence this is E = MC squared poetically speaking. (Report) Reply
