SALINI NAIR

Bronze Star - 6,292 Points (2/2/1981 / kottayam)

My spectacles


This vision is so blurred
Need specs to correct vision
I never care my eyes inborn
Even the rationale of it
These eyes are widen
Still the vision is so blurred
Thickness of glass won't abide
The clarity is just the matter
Time is not yet dictated
But the stiffness tempts always
Long path is still ahead
Yet my life is backward
What measures the life's wisdom?
Lucidity or morale! ! !

    If you really wrote morale and not the moral, then in my opinion lucidity is the only option left. But if you wrote moral then these are morals in which a man believes and follows them, and these morals are the real measure of wisdom. Anyway a nice write. (Report) Reply

    Thoughtful write Salini. Life should never go backward, just because of clarity of path not there. for one need to correct vision by the spectacles....Both measure the life's wisdom, Lucidity and morale....Loved it. (Report) Reply
