Courage

28 Jun


 

When people are falling like nine-pins around ye unsung

Muster courage to hold on till the last drop

For somebody is required to pick up the fallen pals.

 

When ye fathom you are right

But hard-boiled truth dawns, you are otherwise

Accept that truth with courage

And put your ‘right’ to tests

Thou not stand on ceremony

It will inevitably isolate you from the rests.

 

When encircled in the web of uncertainty

In us, a part of overall order of things

Have courage to accept to accept the good words

Of anybody betwixt

Embrace that rightly to free thee out of a fix.

 

Whilst travelling in unknown land

Finding your fellow being in tattered attire and in pain

Muster courage to know his state

Mitigate his suffering – if you can

If not, few kind words will cost though nothing.

 

O, Lord, shower thy blessings, we are in dire need

So that we are courageous to blot out

Disparity from humanity based on caste, colour and creed.
