Nature Is Red In Tooth And Claw - Poem by C. P. Sharma
Cleansing ten million times
Me of my sins can’t purge,
If with base desires I merge
Serenity in mind can’t surge.
If whole world of wealth I amass
Mirage like hunger can’t satisfy,
Millions of crafty ways I devise
But none of them gets justified.
How to purge me of my sin?
How to rid of delusion’s din?
Abide by the Nature’s Law
Nanak, none ever eluded its claw.
Note: From Japuji Sahib with due apologies for discordance, if any.
