Where is pleasure?


Is pleasure there
In body? in speech?
In family? in money?

If no, why then
We are all going after these
though externally?

It is fact,
I love my body,
It is fact,
I deliver speeches,
It is fact,
I have my own money
And my own family.

And I know they are
Not mine though.

Let me see my own clay
In my own mirror.

I know my body is not pure,
My family, my speech and
My money all are also not pure,
The atmosphere itself is not pure,
And all are perishable
And still I cannot renounce
My attachment my egoism.

I know I am far from Truth,
And I failed to realize the Truth
That is there in me.

And I am searching the pleasure
And searching the pleasure.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
