A LOOK AT LIFE-32

BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Discipline

Few can challenge what you say

Still fewer can dispute your value

In shaping and making one’s destiny

Even birds and animals listen to your dictates

And to an extent

They confirm to what

They love and believe

 

You are just awesome

For you and you only

Man is what he is right now

An uncrowned monarch

Of what he sees

And comes across

 

At times

You become too harsh and obstinate

Leaves no room to manoeuvre

My friend

Give us a little space

To think and live

Dance and play

   Innovate

And live life once again

 

You know

Too much of you

Dampens initiative and creativity

And make one confirm and confirm only

Making a mockery of

What he loves and relishes

 

An average man confirms

While a genius deviates

If the primitive man would have accepted

Things as they are

Man would not have been

Where he is now

At the zenith of glory

A Galileo would not have been a Galileo

And Sun would have been still revolving around the earth

 

Be a little lenient

Listen to the voice of change

Accommodate those

Who differ and deviate

For nothing  but truth prevails
