Desire And Despair

Rating: 4.8
Desire and despair
Are two sides
Of the same coin
We dream of stars
And moon
And never reach
Anywhere
Every day we deposit
Our collection
Of despair
In the accounts
Of our mind
But never get
Any interest for it
Yet we try hard to
Increase our deposits
And never try
To admit desire
Is the cause of all despairs

Desire and sufferings - The Buddhist theory. By watching people Buddha found out that the causes of suffering are craving and desire, and ignorance. The power of these things to cause all suffering is what Buddhists call ''The Second Noble Truth''.

Wonderful poem...Beautiful lines... To admit desire Is the cause of all despairs...Very true said. Loved reading it. I feel after a particular point of time in ones life following Buddhism can do much. Especially when one to detach from everything and from all worldly affairs. Loved reading it.

The true meaning of life is substantiated by the ultimate mindset of every individual. Desire and despair are quite human and therefore lay platform for your philosophy of guidance. Well written Mr Prem Kumar.

Desire and despair are related, as the Hindu prince Buddha told, but he did not tell us how to live our life without desire, as everyone can not give up the desire and the bond of the family. If everyone become the monk, whom do we look, for the alms. Donating the ill gotten money will not eliminate our bad karma...Hinduism talks about life...but Buddhism talks about the despair of every meal! ! !

despair deposited in the minds earns us worries, that is the disintersting interest. Simple poem and clear expression of thoughts, nicely put.
