Tunnel Vision

This far and no more
goes the light in a tunnel.
There is a point beyond which
the dark deepens.

Every grain of light
dissolves in the darkness
like a long night lost
in a hopeless argument.
The eyes adapt
yet each compromise
makes you lose some vision.

Like Gandhari who pretended
to know the faces of her sons
you need not bind
yourself to a blind faith.
The faith should allow you to see
through the blinding white of the sun.

Blindfolded, you will never
get to the open.
You may have to grope
a long way along
the corridors of your instincts.

There is light at the other end:
Wake up woman!
