Limelight on stages congested with actions,
Displays of breath-taking world views
Piles of burning desires and paralyzing fears,
Tie you in a cage of the senses.
Restless like a clown walking on the string,
Seduced by forms, drifting in names
Blindly involved in a movie full of colour,
You forgot to look beyond.
'More' is the anthem of the deluded one,
Addicted to thinking and deeds
Born to acquire or reject,
To compare, to look for 'better'
Believing in a plethora of choices.
An ignorant always traces the next moment,
A new attachment, a fixation or pursuit,
Running, striving for goals outside its nature
As a poor dog following a thrown stick.
Such life is a disguised lie,
Ego creates this glittery, throbbing mud.
My friend, wake up
Plunge into the most courageous discovery:
Find out what you genuinely are!
The deceiving seeing will then fall apart
No more a slave, a persona
No role to undertake.
