Moisture Of Empathy - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul
I have understood questions you ask,
Our eyes tear when you are ignorant,
When you divert your face from father
And you run so far in opposite direction
To search a drop of happiness,
But you get tired and you do not get,
Your temporary joy vanishes soon.
We feel and share our feelings with you,
You are in state of confusion and stress,
No material thing gives joy that we need,
By money we get inventions, no joy,
Can you go to market and buy love
And buy a cup of peace and a plate of joy?
Inventions give comfort and make work easy,
No inventions give real happiness we need.
Many of us are thirsty like in summer,
We need to quench thirst drinking water,
Can we drink vapour and ice and hot water?
Will these quench thirst so far we need?
Can we drink hydrogen and oxygen gases?
We need water in particular form to drink,
So that we can quench thirst and get joy.
When water in small quantity diffuses
Within a solid or it condenses in surface,
This looks charming known as moisture,
The ability it carries to feel and share
This is called as empathy in broad sense,
When soul drinks a drop of God's wisdom,
His life is moistened and this becomes soft,
Like the petals of lotus life dazzles,
Then soul serves through his ability,
He gains the knowledge of feeling others.
