A Riddle

A Riddle long poem

A Riddle long poemPhoto by Xurble


Whom should I believe in this life?
For me, life itself is a betrayal
Whom should I help?
I am also helpless
Whom should I give love
I also need love
Whom should I blame for anything?
Blaming can not change the situation
Whom should I change
I also need a transformation
Who can be the cause of my sorrow?
It is I alone who creates sorrow for me
Why God has spawned this world?
And, Why should I seek liberation?
Why he has created emotions,
Attachments and Love,
And, above all sorrows and miseries
It has been a riddle since time immemorial
Many dare to resolve this riddle
But few could understand this riddle
Out of those few
Only a few could unravel it
A few Buddhas, a few sages, a few paramhansas
Solved it and demystify it to many
Nevertheless, only a few could surmise them

A Riddle Wrapped In An Enigma

A Riddle Wrapped In An Enigma sonnet poems

He did not fathom my words; Or that ensnaring wasn’t meant for birds. I was at my wits end; But his stiff-necked tenacity refused to bend. What’s sauce for the goose wasn’t sauce for the gander; I lacked the candour
