    "Truth" by Gwendolyn Brooks


    And if sun comes

    How shall we greet him?


    Shall we not dread him,


    Shall we not fear him


    After so lengthy a


    Session with shade?





    Though we have wept for him,


    Though we have prayed


    All through the night-years—


    What if we wake one shimmering morning to


    Hear the fierce hammering


    Of his firm knuckles


    Hard on the door?





    Shall we not shudder?—


    Shall we not flee


    Into the shelter, the dear thick shelter


    Of the familiar


    Propitious haze?





    Sweet is it, sweet is it


    To sleep in the coolness


    Of snug unawareness.





    The dark hangs heavily


    Over the eyes :-)

    Truth Never Dies

    Anonymous
    Truth never dies. The ages come and go.
    The mountains wear away, the stars retire.
    Destruction lays earth's mighty cities low;
    And empires, states and dynasties expire;
    But caught and handed onward by the wise,
    Truth never dies.
    Though unreceived and scoffed at through the years,
    Though made the butt of ridicule and jest,
    Though held aloft for mockery and jeers,
    Denied by those of transient power possessed,
    Insulted by the insolence of lies,
    Truth never dies.
    It answers not. It does not take offense,
    But with a mighty silence bides its time.
    As some great cliff that braves the elements
    And lifts through all the storms its head sublime,
    It ever stands, uplifted by the wise,
    And never dies.
    As rests the Sphinx amid Egyptian sands;
    As looms on high the snowy peak and crest;
    As firm and patient as Gibraltar stands,
    So truth, unwearied, waits the era blest
    When men shall turn to it with great surprise.
    Truth never dies.

    When my love swears that she is made of truth
    I do believe her, though I know she lies,
    That she might think me some untutored youth,
    Unlearnèd in the world's false subtleties.
    Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
    Although she knows my days are past the best,
    Simply I credit her false-speaking tongue;
    On both sides thus is simple truth suppressed.
    But wherefore says she not she is unjust?
    And wherefore say not I that I am old?
    O, love's best habit is in seeming trust,
    And age in love, loves not to have years told.
    Therefore I lie with her, and she with me,
    And in our faults by lies we flattered be.


    Main un sheesha garahon se pochta hon
    K toota dil bhi jorra hai kisi ney
