Why Does A Person Fear? - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Why does a person fear?
Why does he or she loss cheer?
How does a person achieve?
How does one get mischief?

What is the aim of a life?
Is the age sixty of a person ripe?
Why does a person miscarry?
Why does a person speculate fairy?

How to survive in this earth?
Can a person avoid rebirth?
Many questions arises in person’s mind,
What are the solutions have to find?

A person fear for his or her unjust work,
Telling a lie leads him or her to murk.
Virtuous qualities like truth and nonviolence,
Bring a person peace, bliss and silence.

Noble works, hard labour bring ascent for person,
Meditation brings calmness and righteous action.
Aim of life should be to do good for nation,
And to do for soul will always be the notion.

Night comes after day and vice versa is sure,
Rebirth must come after death, action should be pure.
God can solve each problem if we shall do well,
Let’s meditate him and save life from hood’s tale.

    Kumarmani, congratulations on being chosen for Poet/Poem of the Day! And your poem is a timely reminder of moral values in a world society that often disregards them. But you are speaking for THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD who know our goal of a time of TRUTH AND NON-VIOLENCE can only happen when people are imbued with PEACE, BLISS AND SILENCE. I am glad you voiced these universal hopes in terms of your Hindu beliefs because it shows that when people are faithful to their religious tradition the result is a higher harmony of
    all of us. At this mid-point of 2017 your poem summons us to make this year shine with goodness!

    Questions asked, and questions answered. The profound questions of life, the deep questions. You give straightforward and direct answers that leave a much greater trail of asking than appears here; like a comet with a single point of light, but a much more difficult to perceive tail.

    Live nobly, maintain integrity and humility in the face of a greater universe. My gestalt is that such deep questions require more depth of answer, but then I recall a scripture that addresses this very concern,

    What does God require of you, o man? That you do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly before your God.

    or the Rabbi Jeshua, who pronounced that all the law might be fulfilled in the simple mandate, Love God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.

    I came to this piece with a bit of arrogance in my heart, that the deep questions of life not be addressed so briefly, and leave a bit more humbly stirred that perhaps simplicity does not necessarily equate to inadequacy.

    Thank you for the opportunity for meditation and introspection, both increasingly rare in these times.
