Bliss

A LOOK AT LIFE-114
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

        Bliss 

When ego and interest, pride and vanity,
Selfishness and jealousy, hide and seek,
Mine and thine, falsehood and priority
Come in between,
What remains is not friendship.

Friendship is
Love and reciprocation
Truth and concern
A will to live and die for each other
A commitment to stand by the other
Whatever may be the situation

Friendship is miles away
From everything pseudo and negative
Treachery and hypocrisy, lie and flattery
Blessed is one who has the blessing
Of a friend in his life.
Yes blessed is he
Who has found the heaven on earth
