Peace - Poem by Shreej k.c

I stay silent as two of my friends argue
One calls himself an atheist
the other a devotee
They gaze at me asudden
What are you?
Shun I say,
I donot know
What am I?

Its true I donot visit temple often
nor could I infer this fasting tradition
I frown over my forehead 'tika'
tend to avoid any superstitious plica
What am I dear friends
any less of a theist?

I find the ethereal aroma of incense suave
the eternity I feel with prayer flag wave
the tranquility I hear when temple bell gongs
I do watch my every step I do fear wrongs
What am I dear friends
any less of a sinner?

I admit my knowledge insufficience
to sanction one of your counter credence
I admit my lack in depth may be prudence
to attribute or question one for my own existence
I donot mind you tag my neutrality
my wisdom or cowardice
for I espouse armistice
I embrace peace.
