Two Truths

మే 2014

Like in love
We get wounded in war
Inevitable it is

What difference
Between a teardrop’s stridency
And a blood drop’s tepidity

Everything alike
As the inner heart of a lover

A warrior is
Ever ready to kill

A lover is
Prepared to get killed

It became evening it seems
The sun is washing his sword
And the moon is
Searching for wounds

Origin (Telugu): K. S. Ramana
