Chase of money, wealth and money power Lands human being in grief and despair. The greed for the duo is quite insatiable To achieve contentment, he can not be able.
All the night the little flower, Dwelled in shyness and no laughter. Absorbed it was in sweet dreams Of nearing Sun and in it its bloom.
The Burning Mind
</></>God calmly sat for meditation once He decided to incarnate as a poet great To be carefree amidst humans and rejoice. Frame he built & for heart used 14 carat,
Neither a soldier or a sailor,
Nor either an airman or a God man
To no outfit of an army he belongs,
Yet to be called chieftain he longs
Neither he is wealthy nor a begger
His command is full of poor hawkers.
Misled you should not be by his barking,
On his charge, while the day is breaking.
