If (tribute to Rudyard Kipling)


If you can see not being caught into the sight
If you can enjoy every time & space you belong
And also let the door to pain & sorrow be wide open
Those imposters too have some message for you, your ailing heart, Listen
And yet forget & forgive the past of others & yours too
If you can meet strangers and make friends
Address them never with their culture & background
But with the divine occasion of the meeting of two beings
Play, watch, listen, learn, travel, swim, run, fly, fall & stand again
And amidst the world if you can also remember your true self
If you can dream of the greatest dream you can
Yet not lose yourself in the dream and its elements
If you can act and don't identify yourself the protagonist of your play
If you can observe and respond every new moments with new intelligence
And yet do not dull mind with memories of past, plans for future
Understand there is no time and the eternity will be yours
Inquire least about others most about yourself and the realization will be yours

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
