Rishi Menon


I am free

I am free 

I am spirit in a body, I am free. 
It does not matter 
what another does 
He or She is the same as me.

I have learnt for good many years
And have traveled many lands 
But all the knowledge in the world
Was but a tiny grain of sand

The truth of it I now know 
Neither the big nor the tall
Can make me feel small
For I am a liberated soul

I'm not attached to tales of whims
Nor religious guile of the minions
I'm not attached to sorrow 
Or happiness of millions

For these are but a state of mind
A mind within a body
And when the body dies so shall these
Emotions of a nobody 

I've learnt to remove the I in me
And the Wisdom let me be
To soar the heavens in my true nature
To be free
Ash (Rishi's Dad)

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
