Straight Path

Whosoever tells the truth and travels on straight path
 Is considered rashly lunatic and taken for granted
 He has to face all hatred, all contempt and the wrath
 His entire life passes like an innocent dear haunted

 Victim of ego and prey of hounds and the vultures
 He goes through pain in heart from all in and out
 It is very difficult to live and strive among all archers
 But he takes wisdom from faith to be more stout

 A man of principle goes happily through every fire
 Even if he is burnt he surpasses time for salvation
 Being conscientious he encounters every quagmire
 Son of morality he rises from clouds like fiery sun
