Name Is True - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Name is true
Name is not true
Nothing in nomenclature
In name we have a picture.

In picture we see ourselves
That is not found anywhere
In name we have blood flesh
Shadow concrete beginning end.

Forgetting name
Forgetting everything
Every chanting name
Everyday you get growing fame.

Name and name and name
Name is true
Nothing but name
Name is only screw.

    known by name
    it may be bad or it may be good
    It's your your deed.
    unforgettable give name a fame.
