Kill Instincts To Smile At Death!
Don't kill animals, you are more animal than human,
more and more you learn,
You find animals live in you, Kill their instincts in own your mind,
Humanity and love are that strange light,
in which instincts dry and die and vanish,
you need not find and kill them,
Or you need not banish!
Patience and compassion grow quick and wide,
Under them how can weeds like instinct and ego grow?
Don't kill your desires, not allow them to kill you!
be better gardner of own mind,
neither prune them,
Only plant good virtues and thoughts and take care of deeds,
Care and nurture only love,
Like to live like peaceful dove,
Love that takes care of them remove all pests and weeds!
Don't kill the time, use it well
Some day time may bring you the death,
Do well here, living satisfied,
Welcome your new friend, with a warm hand,
'Hello, my dear Death, how do you do? '
Take this body and mind and everything,
They were always yours, and you are the real owner,
I was that homeless, nameless, formless, tenant,
But never I was hopeless or
And I am that vacating, and you need not force me out!
You could see me,
who I am
Unlike my past lives,
I am now not even that absolute soul of universe,
I am awaken to sleep in my awareness!

Poet's Notes about The Poem
Not even for a minute
'cause like a panther I might
pounce And that will be the limit
I can be sneaky, fast as a snake
I strike like a cobra, make no mistake
And baby you'll be trapped,
quick as a wink It's animal
Don't think that I won't pin you
down No matter how you plead it
I'm like a lion who's been caged
And you are gonna meet it Watch
out I'll warn ya', sharp as
I'm wild as a tiger, I prowl and I stalk
'cause when a man feels thirst,
he takes a drink It's animal
You better not be caught off
guard This wolf is on the search now
A leopard just can't change it's
spots And I'm about to lurch now
I roar like the jungle, I fight
tooth and nail
I just gotta get you, you'll fall without fail
I'm ready for the kill, I'm right on
It's animal instinct
It's animal instinct, animal
instinct Elvis Presley Lyrics
