I have bought this car

I have bought this car
By my own money
I am driving my own car
Under the control of material nature.

My wife my son my daughter
All are here helping me
In this life-driving, my dear
Let me be a free driver.

O my dear, You have given me the licence
To drive this car here and there
You have given me the chance
To fight with water and fire.

I know it is I who is responsible for the accident if any
I know my car my licence are subject to seize for reckless drive.

And we are responsible for all things and answerable to us. It is our own deeds.

    Nice poem to represent the material world through car analogy. Wife and children are family in the life He wants us to lead. Thank you Gajananji. (Report) Reply

    My car is my body. I am going with this body. Let me surrender this body to Truth to Almighty and let me go on the path pf Ultimate Truth. This is the mission. I am in this material world. Material instruments are my wife my sons my daughters though they are also separate and independent on this journey. Let me pray before Him Who has given me this body-car. (Report) Reply

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
