What’s In A Challenge?

by Venkat


challenge not emotion
it is a stormy wind

just stay indoors
holding tight
to the doors of your mind

the wind will come
and soon pass away

point not your fingers
or stick your hands in it
for you will be blown away too

challenge not reasoning
by analysis or speculation
or butcher with sharp words

just throw it
into boiling water
then ice
then fire

if it still survives
it will open itself
in its true tune
