    Wonderful poem...Beautiful lines...
    To admit desire
    Is the cause of all despairs...Very true said. Loved reading it. I feel after a particular point of time in ones life following Buddhism can do much. Especially when one to detach from everything and from all worldly affairs. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    The true meaning of life is substantiated by the ultimate mindset of every individual.
    Desire and despair are quite human and therefore lay platform for your philosophy of guidance. Well written Mr Prem Kumar. (Report) Reply

    Desire and despair are related, as the Hindu prince Buddha told, but he did not tell us how to live our life without desire, as everyone can not give up the desire and the bond of the family. If everyone become the monk, whom do we look, for the alms. Donating the ill gotten money will not eliminate our bad karma...Hinduism talks about life...but Buddhism talks about the despair of every meal! ! ! (Report) Reply

    despair deposited in the minds earns us worries, that is the disintersting interest.
    Simple poem and clear expression of thoughts, nicely put. (Report) Reply

    Very nicely written. It makes one think about desire and despair. I like the way you tie your words to the teachings of Buddha. It's a great lesson and great write 10. (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
