Stars And Demons - Poem by Vikrant Nayak

The views and the perspective which act as your filter,
determine the way you see things and how they deter.
For you the thousand stars could be diamonds,
for me they are the eyes of a thousand demons.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It's loosely based on an incident, that happened when I was still playing hide n seek. Back then, like many others, as a student I hated everything about teachers. I also was never able to understand the reasons on basis of which one could justify the scolding and punishment. Years later, I realized that a lot of the times what we consider to be evil or good, is a direct conclusion of what we want it to be.
