Authenticity

 

I’d never be a glass house,

with each inch truth made,

brightly lit and transparent-

no, not me-

let me be the thick, opaque brick dwelling-

a window of sunlight truth is enough

to live in this world-

I am what I am

a little trace of mellowed truth-

speaking moonbeam words-

none would be hurt-

  1. The contrast of the two buildings in this context is precise! The latter is more stable, cooler, and well served: “a window of sunlight truth is enough / to live in this world”–in my mind, it is not only enough, but refreshing! The light it admits goes both ways: You can also be the moonbeam and the sun.

  2. This is deeply philosophical and poignant, Sumana! ❤️ I resonate with; “let me be the thick, opaque brick dwelling- a window of sunlight truth is enough to live in this world.” 🙂

  3. wow the image of the glass house, the opaque brick dwelling with the a window of sunlight” and “a little trace of mellowed truth-
    speaking moonbeam words” Such beauty and very deep. Love it

  4. I love the contrasts of glass house, ‘brightly lit and transparent’ and ‘thick, opaque brick dwelling’, Sumana, and ‘window of sunlight truth’ and ‘moonbeam words’

Thank You :)
