We crush, our own shadow,


Every moment, as we walk
We crush our own shadow,
Till there is light,
There is shadow,
Our shadow proves: -
There is darkness within brightness,
There is brightness within darkness,
Making reference to this..
What I grasp-
Happiness is the mother of sorrow,
And sorrow is the mother of happiness,

Our act is the only destiny,
And
We are rewarded for that.
Finally, for this body,
Mud and the sand //
