THE FAKE MASTERS.. WHO ARE THEY LIKE?



'If I'm just lax, a few will be found, 
If I become more inattentive, more will be found and 
If I'm caught with an unknown fear within, the most numbers will be found around me called 
THE FAKE MASTERS, 
The self assumed authority 
Originally not there as per Nature’s requirement! 

Nature fixes just 
A SINGLE PAY MASTER 
At a moment in my life in tune with
The Law of Nature for Survival 
And identifying that 
SINGLE MASTER
No doubt, becomes a tough job 
As I'm forever carried over by my emotions more than my need 
And that being the average situation,
THE FAKE MASTERS SURE APPEAR.. 

Their indirect power makes me weak in time 
As I alone have accepted them and
Soon a stage would reach where 
Getting off from their clutches would be seen impossible.. 

In such a scenario 
A FEW WELL-WISHERS 
Would remain just as weaklings alone 
Not able to pull me from the deep drench of mud,
I got into my life.. 

As time moves on the situation only worsens, 
More and more 
SUCH FAKE MASTERS
Start terrorizing me with 
THE TRUE WELL-WISHERS 
Becoming fewer and fewer and 
Many non interfering people getting off from me 
Not able to cure my deep-rooted disease.. 

That way, this one life of mine is 
Forever compromised and written off indirectly with all the 
ORIGINAL ENERGY, VIGOR AND AMBITION 
Permanently put into cold storage..

When the villagers under a strong belief 
Continued to worship the presumed demon in an adjacent cave, 
A young man of the village with the permission of the villagers on a day 
Entered the cave, 
Checked himself every corner of the cave, 
Waited for a day there for any changes to happen and 
Finally ascertained himself that there was nothing other than 
Clusters of cob webs hanging all round.. 

He came out and declared the Truth to the villagers, but the villagers who never had 
THE FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE
Never accepted that and were happy to continue with their 
Fear worshiping the cave..

The young man who had seen 
WHAT WAS WHAT
Too lived with them looking like them only 
But 
Forever free of the fear of cave!

A FAKE MASTER NEXT TO ME 
Is just like the cave.. 

If I am afraid, very much there.. 
If I yield, terrifies me more and 
If I succumb to the pressures, makes me a permanent slave but 
If I stand up and look straight once,
NEVER EVER IS THERE AT ALL!

  1. Yes, rightly said. Fear is our choice, it is a state of mind that makes us a slave of the thing we fear of. One should overpower it to get untied of the chains of restrictions.

  2. Fear is the only source of ignorance. Tat Twam Asi - the omnipotent, omniscient & omnipresent. And to realise it, knowledge is not of much help but courage.

    Well written, Sir.

  3. This post reminds me of Plato's allegory of the cave. Timely post to remind people that many of their fears are imagined and should not be allowed to rule them
