Struggle - Poem by Vidyadhar Durgekar

This world has various thoughts of school,
Truth, honesty were taught to me in school,
With honour they were the ones I chose;
And the life told me I will loose,
The honesty, integrity if I choose;

With honesty, Integrity I held myself high,
But every moment was filled with a sigh;
I believe Still the spirit of Christ shall imply
Come what may they shall be my pride;

I think, I loved the truth I know,
But the world scorned me with a ‘No’
I wait for thee every morning and noon,
To relieve me from these very soon.

Help me help me if you can
To live, let live and shine;
With opposition as ruthless as can;
In my endeavor to tread a path,
Gandhi, Budda, Christ defined;

    Yes sir, i do agree with you that the world dont demand you if you are following the rule of.. honesty and integrity.. But sir, even i follow in leave that 'Nothing is valuable in life than the piece which i get at the end of the day, i dont feel i m shattered or my mind dont jiggle with the thought that if i did opt for a wrong way my growth will be nice. I feel sir, that in life a person should be answerable to his soul and if i m deceving in my life 's whereabouts.. than how will i attain satisfaction....

    a hoest struggle, yes that's what it is when we want to live by the values we have cherished. but times have changed and there is lot of pain in following the path enunciated bv Budha and Christ. its a lonely journey, but it is difficult to compromise because that's who you are. at the end of the day if you can rest in peace with a clear conscious its worth it.

    In kali-yuga, speaking truth itself is a great penance - SriRamakrishna.
    An honest man will be honest in even minutest details of life - James Allen.

    Though life seems to be full of difficulties, being honest in heart itself is the greatest pleasure. This I have sensed all my life. Hope God will bless the same to you. Your poem expresses your steadfastness, though you are tired.
