Discretion


There is difference between
Sadness and despair
Worth knowing
One leads to gloom,
The other brings along doom.

There is difference between
Self-respect and ego
Worth knowing
One is a wise protector
The other, a blind snare-weaver.

There is difference between
Indignation and Anger
Worth knowing
One is a righteous path-builder.
The other, a dumb destroyer.

There is difference between
Serenity and silence
Worth knowing
One effuses eternal calmness
The other can emit soundless clamours.

There is difference between
Management and manipulation
Worth knowing
One leads to progress
The other connects to disgrace.

There is difference between
The Enlightened and the Intellectual
Worth knowing
One personifies purity
The other justifies impurity.

There is difference between
Impurity and filth
Worth knowing
One can many a time give favours
The other is only for scavengers.

There is difference between
Human and Man
Worth knowing
One leads Life
The other concedes life.
