BANGALORE, 21 June, 2012- Can we envelop ourselves with the questions we seek answers to or merely pass them off as trivial anomalies?
If we grey in thought, do we gray in mind?
And if the world were to consume shades of gray,
Would it make the world less black and white?
Could we choose our dreams at night,
If the stars of brilliance invoked our senses?
Or accept them as they are pre-ordained,
Even as we have the right to choose our destiny?
In an opinionated world where matters matter,
If one man proposes and the other disposes,
Is it a sin to disagree to agree while agreeing to disagree?
If we sharpen our wits to proclaim a different existence,
Are we extraordinary in substance but unearthly in spirit?
If we question ourselves and our solemn master,
Would our question become our reigning master?
Or a slave? To belittle the question and seek an answer?
If the world were flat and I spoke to you elliptically,
Would my words be directly elliptical or elliptically direct?
Has humility become a divine virtue to possess?
When it was never to be disowned-yet one to digress,
If we saved our face when we had none to show,
Did we avoid an embarrassment or create a new one?
If I conclude by saying that I haven’t had my final say,
A moot question: did I already create a conclusion or confusion?
