Satyam

Location

The cave fish swim

Round and round

Going nowhere

Blind in the dark

 

Most have no eyes

But one fish sees

Sees the blackness

Feels the hopelessness

 

The fish with eyes

Wants something more

He tries to explain

The others cannot understand

 

So he leaves the pool

Completely alone

With no direction

No illumination

 

He kept swimming

Ever onward

Away from his school

Towards the light

 

He could not see it

But he knew

It was out there

Somewhere

 

The glassy water

Began to ripple

The tug of a current

He swam faster

 

The river pulled

The fish pushed

Together they ran

A white circle appeared

 

The water plunged

Through the cave mouth

Tumbling

Sparkling

 

The fish fell

Ecstatic

Into the sun

His eyes at last

To see the truth
