Permanent And Steady - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Permanent and steady

I thought of asking self first
Then go to others at last
Why at all I should ever blame?
The system, people or their good name

Each and every individual go on accusing
In this way problem remains there and start confusing
No one wants to analyze and go to root cause
Things can change dramatically if given little pause

Why have we changed all of sudden?
Why don't we give chance to others even?
Why do we go berserk in rage and commit crime?
When it is not needed in life at any time

My father used to advise me
Be fearless and feel always free
Nothing can harm you even if you stand alone
The wind may come with force but in no time gone

I hardly can afford to miss mother
Her kind heart and passion I remember
She will never say "go and beat any one"
She may say as you are dear to me so others are to someone

I weep sometimes when they all come and invade memory
I fail to reply them internally and feel very sorry
"Mom you and dad were exceptional"
Today nothing has remained in its form or as original

Previously people use to shower love with feelings
Now it has gone out of tune and completely missing
We have become blood thirsty and act contrary
All sorts of treachery, deception which I feel totally unnecessary

Who can influence our thoughts?
Environment if that goes right
Like minded people find out means to fight
Then only some solution will be in sight

It is back to us for remedy
But no one seems to be ready
If not me then someone else will be greedy
The negative cycle may say permanent and steady

    Dear Hasmukh Bhai, “I thought of asking self first Then go to others at last” Your verses remind of Kabir Which in mind I always bear ‘Buran ko dekhan chalaa buran na milaa koy Kabira undar hee jhaanka muz se buraa na koy’ Went in search of the wicked None has ever been reckoned Inside my heart I looked There was greater wicked Original Kabir weaved threads And modern kabir with words K.H.
