Poem by Pushmaotee Subrun
Faith and Trust
Certainly, faith and trust are what hold us
In this maze of life, so dark and circuitous.
As human beings we often pass through tamasic phase
When our minds are as good as in haze
Added to uncertainty, with hearts painful,
Words or behaviour of our closest ones so hurtful.
We desperately need the tonic of faith, healing,
Comforting, assurance bringing.
Indeed, like the majestic cedars of Lebanon, a must
It is, to have steady faith and trust,
To reign in our minds, to invite peace and beauty,
Yes, freshness, as the pristine, ever green Ooty or Manali,
Or KodaiKanal, to act as the stimuli,
The beacon of hope, and to keep the spirit,
Thus, the holy scriptures, preaching
Love, hope and faith, are so reassuring,
In our mundane lives,
As honey plentiful in hives.
Otherwise, we would have been miserable, pessimistic,
With dreary moods, victims of panic,
Uncertainly, mistrust, loneliness,
Dejection, utterly affected by hopelessness.
