The Blessed Ones

Ehsan Sehgal

Truth is
The reflection of the Self
The voice of the Self
The language of the Self
It is the worth of
The blessed ones
Who don't care
The dangers, the obstacles
The consequences
They don't fall
Into greed
They are not leaders,
But they are
The leader of the leaders
The truth is their strength
The truth is their power
They don't scare
They embrace the death
Without any hesitation
The death is their beloved
The death is their destination
The death is their victory
They glitter all sides
They are
The symbol of truth,
Truth has no death.
