And Lo! - Poem by ramesh rai

And lo!

I give up my all desires

I give up my all fascination
I give up m what you desire
I give up what makes you inferior
I give up that intrudes you
resists you from being superior
I give up all for your satisfaction
which demoralise you.

But may I ask you
Can you stop rays of sun?
Can you stop blowing wind?
Certainly not!

Then for what your ego is?

Throw it out in dustbin
and let the life be free.

    Marvelous. It is rather the ultimate goal to be achieved through pursuit of knowledge. One's ego is the greatest obstacle preventing him/her from getting liberated and free in true sense. If one succeeds in throwing away ego then there would not be need of any other attempt to give-up any thing else. Warm regards. (Report) Reply
