The Other Side - Poem by anushmadhu P.Bharathi

Looking on one side is inane
And see the sight of virtue
On the other side too,
Learn the meaning of life
In rising sun and
From the sunset too.
Learn to admire the thorn
While you admire the flowers

Learn to enjoy the lamps of others
When you are proud of your lamp,
The lamps may differ in shapes
But all lights are useful.

Learn to commend
The poems of others
When eulogize your poetry,
The poetries are with different tunes
But dissolves in the same music.

While you scream with tears
Learn to feel tears of neighbor,
The tears may be
From unrelated eyes
But the origin is similar.

The distastes and fondness,
Makes one poor.
The possessiveness of a thing
Would lead to loose many things;

While the affection prefers poison
And distaste would prefer ambrosia.

It is absurd
To dishonor the roses of neighbors
In order to honor the oleander
Budded in your garden.

It is frivolous
To loathe the star in the sky
In order to boast the fire-flies
In your bush

The fondness makes one to
Loose many rewards-and

Learn to have possession
Of creations of universe-and
Celebrate all with privileges.

(Translated from 'Aalaabanai- By Kaviko in Tamizh)
