My Lesson - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni

I am instructed not to venture out alone after night-fall
And to avoid the dark alleys of likes and dislikes;

I am instructed not to listen to the constant fluttering of my own heart
Howsoever agitated and waylaid by uncertainties and fears it might be.

I am instructed not to hold on to those painful expectations which remain unfulfilled
But take delight in the daylight while enjoying the sun’s warmth.

I am instructed to meet reality reflected in my eyes
To find the truth about my own real self lost amongst illusory objects.

I am instructed to see the sound which wafts in from an outside unknown source
And to re-write that sound to decipher the meaning it conceals.

I am expected to meet truth face to face
Without any hold or fear.
