Close To The Truth

Observe the morning sunlight,
by your penetrable eyes.
How it gently moves in the sky,
and radiates from a distance,
Giving you new hope and life.

Sing a hymn of chained melody,
not with lips but by heart.
Listen not to its rhythm,
But sense the unfamiliar message
that hides between the lines.

Keep a pen with you,
write a poem of thy own.
Inculcating a piece of significance,
Luminating the revealing shadows,
where troubles and doubts germinate.

Live your life as if your last.
Enrich every moment of it.
Do something virtuous,
you won't regret at the end.
For when time passes,
it can never be turned back,
No matter how hard you try.
