Nothing Abides (A Bhajan Of Kabir) - Poem by Sunil Uniyal

Nothing abides in this alien land.
This world is like a papery wrap
that dissolves in drops of water.
It is like a hedge full of thorns
wherein one dies, if entangled.
It is indeed all bush and thickets
that quickly burn when caught in fire.

Says Kabir, listen O wise one,
only in the teachings of the True Guru
is to be found an abiding abode.
