What to Embrace

To perish embracing the convincing lies

Or, face the wrath of life for moving away from them and nurturing the truth

Life has many faces; their reflections are distorted because of masks

Whom to believe?

Whose dialogues are honest and worthwhile?

Not because it augments material wealth, but honesty pays with hope

That indestructible mind comprehending the many facets of life

Honourable! Not a hypocritical way of weaving a mask to gain sympathy

There will be naysayers narrating the worst possible scenarios of embracing truth

In death, there is a moment where the entire universe stares at those eyes

Asking about the choices; those that were deliberately erased 

To become a lexicographer who had twisted all the meanings
