Know Yourself - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Not easy to know self
It is like lying of treasure in sea shelf
It is there but lying unused
And even if it is with you, it is always misused

No one has known self so far
It is like wonder to look at star
You take no precaution to utilize it for self and others
You are preoccupied all the time for deceiving and bother

So it is said “enjoy yourself as far as you can”
Concentrate on achievements and train
You should train your guns only on those objects
Which really need your attention with acts?

Everybody lives by what he thinks and believes
This does not serve purpose or relieve the pain
It is just an exercise in futility
This is weakness of human being and considered as poor quality

If someone has successfully came out of it
Then it can be taken as bold initiate and feat
Only few people may know of themselves
As their whole action may succeed and revolve

It requires courage and stubborn mind
It may help you to go in and try to find
Some innovative ways and its solution
It speaks of strong mind with evolution

If you little of your weaknesses
It won’t be that difficult to assess
Some of the steps taken may be disastrous
But that may remain steady and continuous

You can take solace by claiming “human is to err”
If you are totally ignorant then you may simply stare
You will find no corrective action from your heart
You will have two minds to speak with very bad start

Not all may succeed in that generous way
They may have all the apprehensions with the bad day
They may blame it with their luck or fate
They may not be able reach even up to gate
