The Echo Within You
Forget the world, the philosophers and mentors
Look deep into yourself and fetch out what stirs
That petty belief which makes you think you're small
Would crush your intellect, spoil your thoughts and ideas; may kill them all.
Be alone, silent, dwelling inside your heart
Planning, hustling, struggling against the odds
Mark You! That's your real art.
Speak Less, Listen more! -it makes you wise
Stay firm and adamant in your ways, even if they despise.
Life compells you, begs you or moans at you
'Don't ever close your eyes, Take an overview'
You are the master of your own self, your own Lord
Look up, Aim High! Stretch out your wings and fly high as a free bird.
Grow big and sturdy with wisdom and confidence
Life ought not be hollow; I pray, 'Green it deep and dense'
Let not a 'farce melancholy', 'a gusty fear' or a 'capricious love'
Pluck out the power and vigil from a flying dove.
