King of Ayodhya really stuck in a bind,
Way out of rock and hard place couldn’t find.
To protect the truth was his vow,
But part with son Rama could he how?
“I need Rama” lord of munis did say,
To drive the likes of Maricha away.
Dasharatha did not know what to do,
Agreed in end, love for Rama to stay true.
In bhakti no fault with following the mind,
Because even by thinking of God love to find.
