How do I pursue the path of truth
When many more around me
Hold a differing point of view
And warning eyes surround me
I know how they burnt Copernicus
Alive, for what he used to think
I know how genius Socrates had
Hemlock, he was made to drink.
Galileo and Einstein had to flee
Their homeland for being right,
Against those who thought otherwise,
Had power to control but no insight
And how can I forget Jesus, who
Was brutally nailed to the cross
For maintaining the truthfulness, and
Spreading peace & love the world across
Wait ! All is not, yet, lost. We see
Their truth prevailed and won
Till now, those ones are remembered
While the ignoramuses are undone.
The Sun sets and goes down, daily
Only to rise again, nascent and potent.
With love and peace within my heart
I would, surely, attain enlightenment
