Momentary Acquisition - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

We need many more lands to cultivate,
Crops we gain harvesting these again,
We acquire many inventions and assets,
Wealth we preserve and money we spend.

These are material things and temporary,
For few years or many years these last,
But these are perishable and we leave,
Momentary gain gives short term happiness.

Still we easily do not leave running behind,
We run behind matters and grasp these,
We favour and see new light of affection,
While we follow path of spirituality is nice.

Every material acquisition does not satisfy,
Desires grow more and spread like wild fire,
Wise persons do not attach mind in matters,
They love God and love light of wisdom.
