I Do Not Care About Social Norms - Poem by Mirabai

I will fasten the bells of his love to my feet
And dance in front of Girdhar.
Dancing and dancing I will please his eyes;
My love is an ancient one.
My love is the only truth.

I do not care about social norms
Nor do I keep my family's honour.
I cannot forget, even for a moment,
The beauty of my lover.
I am dyed in Hari's colour.

    The sense of giving up everything for love of Krishna is an example for true love itself, truly awakens the mind that defines the meaning of eternal, infinite, only and true love......... (Report) Reply
