Why do people get scared of reality
when they see it face to face?
looking back coldly at those eyes
full of curiosity and innocence?
These naïve souls who try to play
with fire, thinking that it’s the small
earthen lamp burning, lighting up home,
get frightened when they see its power.
They think that life is evenly distributed
with the same harmony and rhyme
they try to tally their life with all live
when they are proved wrong they detest.
Reality is just like fire, some places it burns
Low, lights up, warms up and glows
In some places it burns out of bound and
Scorches every soul which comes around.
