Destiny of Truth

Destiny of Truth

I searched for the truth, knocked the world

But, I didn’t find truth;

Searched in humans, but it made me drain;

Pausing a while, quenched within me, but in vain,

Pleaded with everyone; none satisfied me;

O ME, man of bending faith so long, with wide-awake

O myself, quenched for truth; it has come freely when I drunk;

Pleasure to have peg made me to tell the truth;

But, it did not continue; it was worst hangover of my lifewith puke;

I myself realized the difficulty to tell the truth; with noble cause,

Asleep a whole, stuffed within me, yearning for pause;

Oh. ME, man of slack faith so long.

Standing indifferent and thoughtful, denying portions so long;

O myself, delve truth; changeless with others.

Resting a while, quenched within me, longing for truth;

I transformed myself to understand the reality of untruth,

Origin of truth is crystal clear like; ‘Eye of the beholder’

Imyself realized that deepest truth is looking within; i.e. divine bystander.

    When the search for truth comes to an end, the "I" in me comes to an end. What remains is just the throbbing of life. Experiencer is no longer there to experience the truth! Thats the truth.d.
