blame game

Updated on January 7, 2016

isn't,
blame,
a dirty game,
of fire and flame,
which, when inflamed,
engulfs everyone to its contour,
escalating within them a sinful nature,
and making people be rascals,
making their own lives,
and for others,
a hell ?


to survive,
an environment of such galore,
being bold and righteous is no answer,
cause every word spurted,
will lead to oust,
the even one,
out.


Be the odd,
save your world,
remain sane, refrain,
like a lotus untouched by mud.

      Hari, you touched my heart.Blaming others,including ourselves becomes me the weakling only defence mechanism.

      The fact that lotus is disattached to the Sansaric mud,it is part of our Eastern rituals and Archanas.

      Big social message.Thanks

      The lotus blooms in mud pond.Cause and effect are like flower and stem as the continuum.None is separate and goodness and dirt are residing in each other!

      Trying to catch up here, Hari bhai. Weekends are best suited perhaps. Wonderful poem and the lotus is a fabulous example.

      Thanks jodah,

      I also thought about it while writing, that it looks like a flame.

      Eric you are right. There is no way to avoid it. But to disconnect yet be connected is tough.

      Perfection in imperfections is a constant unending seek.

      Wonderful romp through the thicket of angst - and the inevitable escape clause of avoidance the prize
