This World Is So Funny
Thou my Lord greatness
Poured upon me love and kindness
Thou showered all worldly richness
Filled my heart with thy sweetness
That made me a deep rooted
To the noble values, you created
Endowed me the gift of a Giver!
Thou stands as a beckon light
I followed thy path day and night
Never stayed away from doing good
Always toiled in peaceful mood
Showed generosity like a gentle rain
Served everyone in their pain
Loved to live the life of a Giver!
Once misfortune fell on my back
So I went to seek someone's favour
I was baffled by the way he looked
His cruel eyes were deadly arrows
I was made to feel a useless crack
The door was shut with such an anger
Blocked my way to further enter
Thou tell me, what is my wrong?
Why did you give me the life of a giver?
Why did you make me beg from a commoner?
I know you are the game deviser
You made me realise
How easily one can give
But how tough it is to receive
This world is so funny
Oh God! I neither wish
To become a giver nor a beggar
Thou is the Giver
Who knows the humans nature!
