Theme: Confession


I am not the best of all,
Yet the best
Among the worst
With follies and vices
Of human life,
By the warring foes
Of urges and impulses.

I am a human being
Urbane to the core,
Far better
Than the worst of the best-
Very inhumane-
The ruthless rooks
Clothed well
In crafty decency
As goody-goody people..!

Comment " But the question is who don't accept the folly? even if a few of them don't share that with others, in the heart of their hearts they very clearly understand the vice or the vices embedded in their psyches.
Now it's altogether a different thing that very few of them are articulate enough to speak their mind."

Comment "Wow ! What a ' confession' ! So courageous to speak about oneself. "......very inhumane---the ruthless rooks, well clothed in crafty decency as goody -goody people ".We know of confessions in cathedral before a priest or in- camera before a judge but seldom does one find it being put on public domain voluntarily through a poem. This can come only from the person who is confident of his craft , creative in his abilities and has the courage of conviction. Kudos to Bhaskarji ! "
