Reality - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Is it necessary that death is to be contained?
Reality ignored and hypocrisy maintained?
It is just to please the fallacy
Nothing is hidden and kept as secrecy

Why are we not exploring the real fact?
It is crystal clear and seen as tact
We take refuge to satisfy inner ego
It was known to all even long ago

We always term everything as wish of the God
Success or failure by the creation of lord
Nothing we accept it as our own folly
All blames passed on to the name holy

Life and death continue to go along
No one is sure what will be the duration long
No one leaves the work for the simple reason
If it has to come then it will be in any season

No one thinks of dying today or tomorrow
Prayers are made for long life or time to borrow
Everybody is sure of happiness, joy or sorrow
Earnest desire to succeed and smooth flow

It is wish cycle that goes on searching
Different ways of solution and reaching
May be sometimes short cuts without blessings
Things in anticipation based only on guessing

It is absurd thinking to ask for return
We have done absolutely nothing in turn
It is wishful thinking for things to change
No wisdom even after passing of the age

We have been sent here for special mission
Still not prepared to have guilt admission
It is likely to have thought fallout or emission
One should have long vision with passion

How do we overcome unstable mind?
Will there be any ways to find?
Has that found simple state of existence?
We should avoid unnecessary insistence

    'We take refuge to satisfy inner ego.'

    Many true things are said in this poem. It´s so easy to blame fate or destiny, or to use the easy way out explanation 'the will of the lord'. When in fact we lack in responisibility.
