Treasure Island

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

This is not mine


This is not mine,
Not mine, not mine, not mine,
This body and also this mind.
How can these be mine?
See, I have no control
Over this body or over this mind.
My body is changing at every moment
And I am in dark about the changes
I have nothing to do with these changing processes.
So also my mind is changing with the time
And I am here far behind the time
And at no stage I have put forth my grievances.
At a glance, I may say, I have no right even
Over my food, over my dress and over anything.
