The Dawn of Hope


In the distant horizon, the dawn broke,

Rosy, like lovely lips,

Golden, like fairy-tale locks,

Exultant, like the sailor boy,

Gleaming, like the scimitar blade,

Brave, like a freefall,

Happy, like a heart in love.


I saw it, and I slunk away,

To the darkness inside,

Dark in the brilliant lights,

Safe, and comfortable,

Fed, and warm,

Dull and numb,

Petrified by my awakened dreams,

Terrified of the dawn of hope


I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!
