Down And Out Poem by Anil Kumar Panda

Down And Out

Rating: 5.0

I am already down and out
I am almost dead and burning
Give me no more pain
I am already a fallen leaf
Flitting with the wind of summer
Wandering across fields and lanes

Don't think about me
In a few days I will be in the sea
In the tides flowing high and low
Getting lashed and losing my glow

And paradoxically spiritual teachers say we gain wisdom by not being attached to things.

The amazing instrument of the human mind can enter any corner of reality. Under blows of fate, it may feel as insubstantial as a drying, wind-drive leaf.
