My Fault - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni
I neither have four heads nor a thousand pairs of eyes
To probe what causes conversion of forms into numerous joys
Which consciousness alone enjoys and speech gradually reveals.
I do not play with others’ emotions
Nor allow my own emotions to run wild
Lest I create a mirage everyone believes to be true.
But tell me, I fervently ask –
Is it my fault that I do not lie to delude myself
That I am curious to know what lies beyond things seen and unseen
That I can probe even beyond the reach of time and space?
Is it my fault that I am the very bright powerful five-headed five-limbed entity
That constantly excited keeps itself ablaze
And whose influence beyond all phenomenal conditions and dimensions extends?
That I am aware of my true identity as the eternal one
That I do not care about what I possess and do not possess
That I feel no pain no elation no sense of being
As I look downwards at the place from where I had made my start?
Tell me, do tell me-
Is this all my fault?
