Taught in My Codes

Written by: Sadat Khan

Glad you be in grace 
Benumb, in disgrace 
Hearty you be in giving
Broad you be in forgiving.

So much did I hear -
The buzz of moral quotes

Either sung by Gurus or coded in Scripture;
Either floating in the air of practitioners.

Virtue lives in the instincts.
I feel incapacitated in trials and errors,
Exhausted in files of books.

I am rather empty,
rather humble in the dearth of knowledge--
I know - not much;
But I follow - what comes from within --
Thus I mold my life's coding.
