Listening

Just a random noise, I suspect at first
I try to hear with outright concentration, but in vain
As if nothing could prepare me, for it was beyond the limited perception of my brain

Suddenly, oblivious to avoid, resist or compare with,
I happen to give up all my pretenses
In the absence of measurement, comparison or interpretation, I now attend, with every bit of my senses

Amid complete attention, I cross boundaries and hold no center
Once thoughts, ideas and ideals are renounced
I break free of knowledge when the meaning is unmistakenly pronounced

The vibration sounds so pure, almost divine
Deciphers every word, symbol and image, I ever knew
Piercing my ‘Darkness’, the delusion, I held so close, clearly in view

What is Truth: What is your truth?
