Poem: MIMES

Updated on October 30, 2015

They see the world through their own eyes,

Dividing things into black and white;

They know what looks like a day

Is a bright veil of gloomy night.

They show gestures and illustrate

What they think is wrong and what they hate;

And yet they refuse to utter a word

To protest against things untoward.

In an effort to live a risk-free life,

They die inside a thousand times;

Painted by mind yet muted by doubt,

Civilized citizens act like mimes.

      Excellent shubro. I loved it. true to core. common people think struggle is a must cause they think others control them, which is so untrue, there thoughts inflict pain and are ignorant about it.

      Add two more lines. Make it a Sonnet. It is an incredibly beautiful message and quite pertinent, as well as deep. A brilliant piece!

      Welcome! You have come from the land of Tagore, Aurobindo, Ramakrishna and Sri Chinmoy.

      "Diye jai, diye jai

      Niye kichu nahi pai

      Tomar karuna da rai .....

      Shudhu suru

      Tomar karuna da rai ....

      Nahi kichu ai." - Sri Chinmoy. (My Bengali is a little shaky).

      "God's compassion, always gives to me.

      It never takes anything from me.

      Constant giving is it's game eternal.

      This giving, remains an eternal beginning,

      With no end." - Sri Chinmoy

      Lots of Love. Continue ...continue ...
