Aim Of Life In Accord - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Why do we born and what is our aim?
What is the life? Is it to enjoy and claim?
Some pine to lead their lives in sorrow,
Some do pleasure to earn wealth as like hero.

Abandoned persons give grieves men to men,
And get pleasure as possible as they can.
Persons like hunters enliven the lives using arrow,
Killing animals with pleasure and do get marrow.

People like body consciousness ever do harry,
Earn bundles of notes having black white marry.
They do everything for their skinned, blooded body,
Which is perishable even a king, queen or gentle lady.

There is a soul inside the body that drives body car,
It needs peace, purity, love, bliss, happiness and par.
Righteous persons ratify these qualities with joy,
The life should be charisma and never be toy.

As body is mortal and soul is ablaze light,
Aim of life should be zipped to earn honesty &bright.
Meditation ought to be done in favour of supreme soul,
To acquire sympathy, empathy, kindness would be our goal.

He is our father, mother, comrade and censor,
Let his blessing on us to be kind and censer.
He will sanctify us and our sins will be vanished,
We have to earn earlier as unknowingly life will be finished.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

There are creatures around Earth. Human being is one of them keeps the power of thinking, reasoning, constructing, capturing, moralizing and establishing. He has the power of destroying and evil doing too. In spite of these powers he has, he is ignorant about the aim of the life. He thinks life to be enjoyed. Some persons enjoy themselves and get pleasure by teasing others, by giving sorrow or killing animals and birds. They think, after death nothing is to be done. Some do not believe in rebirth. Their main aim of life is to earn bundles of notes (rupees) by hook or by crook in order to have well dwelling, comfort living and merrymaking. Man is mortal. His body is perishable. But soul is immortal. This can't be destroyed. This soul will take rebirth having a body according to his Karma i.e. action. The divine qualities like peace, purity, love, bliss, happiness, equality, honesty and nonviolence etc. should be the limbs of human being. These qualities along with sympathy, empathy and kindness should be earned in spiritual purpose which are eternal and will go with soul. Meditation ought to be done in connection to Supreme Soul who is known as God. He will wash our sins, purify us and will provide us eternal peace. This should be the aim of the life and would be done as earlier as possible because it is ignorance to us when and where our lives will be perished. This poem is based on such theme. This is written on special occasion of Lord Ganesh's Pooja in Deogarh, Odisha, India and dedicated to the people of the world on the day of 3rd September,2014.

    You have a very intrepid insight into human nature, Kumarmani, you have a feel for the substance of life and
    how we should live it, with honesty, goodness, nonviolence. A very comforting poem, spiritually eternal, yet
    a part of our present, empathy and kindness fulfilling our soul's rebirth. Very beautiful, indeed, Kumarmani.
    A rhythm cascading through my mind as I read it! Thank you for sharing it, RoseAnn. (Report) Reply
