A Secret Revealed.

This post has been published by me as a part of Blog-a-Ton 56; the fifty-sixth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write.

A Secret Revealed.

We suffer, we prosper, we born, we die,
we hate, we love, we dare, we shy,
we eat, we sleep, we laugh, we cry,
whatever our faiths we all lie.

But you never reveal any oddity?
Who are you? What's your identity?

We go to holy site,
we perform religious rite,
we climbed dangerous height,
whatever our faiths you were beyond our sight.

And you never show your visibility?
Who are you? What's your identity?

YOU are hiding behind veils of
Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity,
Sikhism, Judaism, Jainism, Spirituality,
Who are you? What's your identity?

This secret I found, I found that secret,
when I rummage inside my heart.
You were no where but everywhere,
depends on what view for you we adhere.

You are none but an impression of our heart,
told to us as a secret from the day our life start.
Until when we learn this truth and this secret get revealed,
Humility and Humanity i.e your face from us remain concealed.

  1. A truth very well told in an evocative manner. We prefer to hide behind religion rather than reveal our identities. Superb:)

  2. Unmasking .... As an agnostic anthropologist i loved this post and the reason is obvious ... and there is common secret in our posts .. :)

    ATB for Blogaton

  3. A thought provoking poem .This is the truth of humanity.

  4. Quite a beautiful rendition, Cifar. I think God is one, and what we imagine Him to be, but we do hide behind religion, yes. Maybe that is a part and truth of humanity, as Usha ma'am puts it.

  5. Thoughtful poem Cifar! Loved every bit of it. All the best for BAT! Keep writing!

    Poetically yours,
    Someone is Special

  6. Simple rhymes emitting powerful messages...
    Late realizations, coming in life's later stages...
    Sad..but true!
    All the best for BAT 56

  7. nice poem here. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Truly thought provoking poem. Good luck for BAT 56!

  9. True, Its blind faith, people follow without questioning.. The world needs more contemplation and pursue of truth.. but you know, we are too busy for that...
    Nice. All the Best for BATOM

  10. This poem indeed initiates a discussion. "Humility and Humanity", such a rare sight now. But when people realise they do exist, probably they would gain their popularity soon.

  11. There is a lot of hypocrisy already as though it is not enough. The amount of arrogance, bullying and even criminal intent are just atrocious. Not just individuals but the rich nations plundering the deprived and poor nations. Your poem is very intrusive and can be most relevant to cover the political and economic bullying perpetrated. by the developed countries. Very thoughtful take Cifar!
