Philosopical Mind - Poem by Anoop Lokkur

Who are we to blame, if we live a lie?
How do we know if we live a lie?
What are we to do if we are living a lie?

Answers we seek through questioning our mind
What we choose to believe or
Choose not to believe
Depends on our reasoning

What we see, we believe
What we feel, sometimes we believe
But yet the truth remains
Hidden in an abyss
The more we dig
The bigger the hole
How are we to know
When the hole is to become a tunnel,
A tunnel with no end or begining
Lost forever in the cycle of mystery
In the process of turning into History.

    The ancient Tamil Poet Thiruvalluvar wrote a couplet 'Katradu kai mannalavu, kalladadu ulagalavu, ' meaning 'How much sand a hand can hold, that much only is learnt; how much not learnt, that much of world-measure.' There are so many things in the world still appearing as a mystery. A good attempt is made in this poem to highlight this point. (Report)Reply

    We are each to blame for the lives we live. There are
    two words which you used that are key to answering your question.
    The first is cycle. The second is history. Pay close attention to them and your answers will be found on that narrow path. Continue on. The poem was less
    than your meaning.
