A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek).

 

The one who is born is bound to die

The one who is created is bound to be destroyed

 

When there is a ‘storm’, there is bound to be a ‘calm’

When the tree grows, it’s bound to fall

 

So what’s new in this, one would say!

Yes nothing is new in this

 

Yet we forget it most of the times

 

If only we had the awareness

To go inwards and seek our own beauty

 

If only we had the courage

To go inwards and seek our own fullness

 

If only we had the honesty

To go inside and discover the truth

 

That would be the end of all anger

That would be the end of all fear

That would be the end of all pain

 

Life would miraculously turn into a blessing

Life would become adventurous

Life would become exciting

And the body would become a heavenly abode to live in
