A Spell Of Truth



A mirror is kept aside
A mirror of truth and faith
It splits the light of care
And spills the dark of dare

The light in our mere heart
And the bright of our might
Comes out back again
More sharp and live

So does the hatred of dark
And the spillage of lonely thoughts
Gets stuck inside deep with stains
Deep without us known

The stain does not get through
Unless burned to ashes
So be sure enough
To watch yourself with truth.

Hi Susan :)

Magnficent photo!

The person walking from darkness towards bright light and throwing away ignorance, evil thoughts, malice,jealousy, greediness, arrogance,revenge etc. and embracing truth, knowlege and love.

The poem is very inspiring and instructive and serves as an eye opener for all of us to come out of our evil ways and thoughts and embrace truth and love.

My hearty congratulations to you!

Have a beautiful day :)

Wonderful poem! Very true and well written!

It reminds me of Gita, Krishna says that like the smell remains in a asafoetida box, even after the content is emptied, the residue of thoughts will remain in our mind even after removing the thoughts, and warns us to not let them sprout again.

The picture is also excellent. Did you work on it?

And thanx for your comments in my blog. Best wishes :)

the mirror always proves there is something inside you that makes you remind that anything is possible as it always reflects the same thing inverted. a mirror is the proof of uncertainity in life and your words prove that beautifully
