To Be Me You Have To Be Me
Confessions of Krishna - 8
To enlighten Arjuna in the Kurushetra war I told him
That he can see me in the brightness of sunlight,
In the taste of water and I am everywhere,
In all the five elements and galaxies
But the fundamental truth now I reveal
That you are my brightness
The axis of all my power
And to my life you are the water
All the strength I possess comes from you
Which made me victorious in all those wars
With mighty Kamsa and the thousand hooded Kaliya
And in advising Arjuna to win Kurukshetra war
I still remember you wiped the sweat on my forehead
When I lifted the Govardhana Mountain with ease
In my single hand to protect you all for days
From Indra’s stormy rainfall, like an umbrella
I still remember you looked at me with awe
When I came out from the Yamuna River
After the grotesque fight with Kaliya
Killing it and giving peace to people
To you those were the show of my strength
But the real fact I always kept a secret
That it was the might of your love
Which releases in me the power of avalanche
I never revealed the truth that
You are the secret of all my might
But how much I wish now to say this ultimate fact
That to be me you have to be me
