the real shocks

when people have enough material to ease you

and you don’t get provoked, they get the shock

when the people are jealous of your success

you don’t pay heed to them, they get the shock

when people laugh at you when you fell down

but you stand up smiling, they get the shock

when people dig grave and you are trapped

but you don’t lose your cool, they get the shock

when you fail in your endeavors, others joy

and you too join their gang, they get the shock

when there is no one standing to speak truth

you stand up alone resolute, they get the shock

why to blame the electricity for all the shocks

when truth is electrifying and honesty rocks
