'Energy' For Work

Poem by Kishore Kumar Das

What makes you tired?
physical strength essential
but mental weakness can overpower it
if you throw your heart for any work
you don't feel tired
the essence of 'karma yoga'
revolves with that
if you consider 'work' as you
and this awareness is natural
then mind filled with energy
any natural thing not tiring
is a normal person tired
or annoyed by breathing?
like the satellite on the orbit
driven by solar power
like the power supply
connected to infinite bus
your mind connected to
universal source of power
and work is done
but one feels tired
as one lacks focussing attention
one loses concentration
bizarre thoughts haunt the mind
no effort with love
all these drain mental energy
although physically fit
so tune with one's heart
tune with the universal energy.

    life should be taken very seriously
    it must be respected and thoughts should be pressed continuously
    life shall never let you down
    your work shall be appreciated and stand well-known

    Both physical and mental strength are essential for making effort for good and valuable work. We have to capture the tune with natural and universal energy. God gives us strength much with values. We have to keep trust in him and work and walk in righteous ways. This poem is excellently penned...10(Report)Reply
