Life Is Simple - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

It was a noon of summer
I was walking on the footpath
I saw a man sleeping
Under a road-side tree
Spreading his thin towel
Snoring deeply
He had no tension, no worries
No fear of theft
I watched him for some time
Sat there for a while
On an exposed root of a tree
And observed closely.

I heard....
The sound of his snoring
was telling clearly
Life is very simple
You all made it complicated.

    Agreed. It appears as if we have made all the progress to complicate our lives rather than making it simply comfortable. Thanks.
