Ssh... Listen

Ssh... listen

To the cry of a child

A new beginning

And the truth implied


Ssh... listen

To the vagaries of rain

That stops short of the desert

And deluges the plains


And listen to the nature

Of your love

Your reasons for living

When reason's not enough


Ssh... listen

To the paradox of youth

The feeling when life

Is pregnant with truth


Ssh... listen

To the reflections of your worlds

As the mirrors of paradigm

And life unfolds


And listen

To the kingdoms choice bequeaths

From the elysian fields

To beyond the river Styx


And listen

To the insane prediction

Reality weavers

In the face of conviction


-Suraj Mani

Reality weavers In the face of conviction
