Reality of Life
Lost in our own – celluloid world
Chasing happiness – with unending hopes
Doing everything – that mind says bold
We live our lives aiming – far away goals….
Hatred, revenge, deceit – jealousy, annoyance
Greed, desire, craving – lust at its best
Me, Mine, Myself – above everything
This is our ‘world’ – which we accept so well….
When old age comes – knocking on the door
When death do part our – loved ones and so
When sickness numb us – with feelings so low
We cry with grief – coz that’s all we know….
Nothing in the world – stays as you would want
Not even your life – you hold above all
Impermanence is the nature – existence of all
This is the practical ‘truth’ – for intelligent search….
If we can see this – as reality of life
And want to feel – the happiness of this life
There is a great teacher – who taught us with kind
The path to the freedom – from grief every kind
There is a reason – for everything to be
Nothing happens without a cause – that’s the reality
When cause ceases away – effect ends to be
That is the teaching – of the Buddha ever Supreme.
