Life Of Life

I am neither a learned nor a lettered
I am a lay man-

I do not have shackles of erudition
I do not add to thought-pollution
I do not hide in debates
I do not protect me with challenges
I do not proclaim, I do not defend
I do not expound, I do not propound
I am not entangled in language
I fly and fly beyond many a mirage

My visions do not wear colors
My perceptions do not use lenses

I am neither a learned nor a lettered
I am a layman-

Scholars, a lot, have come
They threw their expertise
Still deficit has not reduced
The pains are not removed

Eccentricities, idiosyncrasies,
Effected behaviors and opinions
Have punched the mankind
The mankind has been bended

Academicians came with a bang
But, the society awaits a song to be sung!

The civilization is being constructed in a big way
The required finesse is staying away!

The mankind is suffering from the spasms of isms
Misconducts have mischievously misplaced the optimisms

Slogans generate disturbances...
Principles produce perturbations...

I am neither a learned nor a lettered
I am a layman-

As a layman, I am peaceful,
As long as I am a layman
I will be peaceful!

I am neither a learned nor a lettered
I am a layman-

To me living is the path
Life of life is the truth!
