Oh culprits of crime I will have you know.
That you are but the cloud that is blamed for the rain that floods the valley
By those near-sighted eyes that have neither lost itself in the vastness of the ocean nor sweated in the unapologetic heat of the sun as you have done again and again.
Don’t be too mindful of their laws and their sentences.
As they sentence you their ignorance is their imprisonment.
Though time that you do, may seem longer theirs is deeper and harsher.
The strong prison walls are visible to you hence to will an escape.
For their walls are invisible and weak.
Therefore they live their sentences unaware of it for many lives.
Oh criminals of world
Always be the open window to the judgments passed on to you.
Let the blame get absorbed in the oblivion on the other side and never return.
And always remember while it is true that a window closed to keep out the insects breeds the maggots.
But it is also true that a window closed to trap the scent of spring decays the scent and rejects the spring.
Hence be the open window.
