To Be Or Not To Be - Poem by Dr subhendu kar

To be not to be
as it would have been
as on today or some other day
to tell you the truth of faith
yet known or unknown yet unified.

as i know you yet unreasoned
that reasoned you to reason out
the truth of knowing the earth
might be the reek of anger in knowing
or bedecked by the mystery of silence
when embarked upon a dew of the night
as petals smile that blooms in whorl of rose

delved from deep crowd when braced up
by the truth in resilience of a gleam
as glamoured by the graceful glaze
that yet happens to happen to know you
when peppered by the beauty as razz ling in rain

as to know you from a depth of crowd
when coursed from the silence blue
as waves of the sea splashing over
flairs of moon sneaking into silhouette
yet revered by wakes of new moon.

    ...and when there was drought of goodly spirit the poet wrote a true word that pierced the crusty souls and they cried until the cisterns were full.

    Your poetry serves man, no word superfulous.

    To be or not to be is an eternal dilemma that every man faces at some point
    of time in his life................
    As always write full of images...........

    The fear of being wronged, may keep us from trusting people. This fear can be crippling, preventing us from taking a step of faith immediately before us.the closely related fear of being suspected immobilizes, but we are always going to be misunderstood by someone, no matter what we do.
