(Dedicated to all who can rise for truth and justice for peace in the
world - Deepak
childhood, I was little slow kind except running!
to think more than needed before responding -
made me a fast runner, speed player
a slow learner and delayed answerer!
by parents and peers, tried my best to become smart
schools and universities learning state of the art
how smartness dictates career in the world
honesty, creativity, sincerity and hard work -
in conflicts to reveal people
only acting smart!
I grew older
reactions to chronic world problems became even slower
events more reading between lines undercover
how we feel secured staying busy with career -
better car, richer neighbourhood, bigger house and barrier
slowed down to feel how earth spinning
for daily rotation
to plants, animals, birds, beyond civilized pollution
Gods smiles illuminating dynamic creative evolution -
smartness is to embrace truth
against all humiliation!
