Nothing Is Ours - Poem by Arti Chopra

nothing is mine, yours or ours,
all belongs to HIM
HE bought us into this world
HE will take us at his whim

so quickly we forget
and think all is ours begotten by us,
how much we hoard and cling and lust
how much we covet and fuss

when death comes unwanted unasked
all is left right here,
then why the ego, I and ME
the body is left rotten and bare

this body which we deck and feed
and take pride in and and are vain,
this body one day will wither and fade,
and maybe be drenched in pain

as we sow, so shall we reap
is the theory of Karma explained
you give love, you will get love
you cause pain, and you will be pained

nothing happens without HIS will
nothing moves or is born,
be rooted in this reality,
or one day you will be torn

love as you want to be loved,
give happiness and you will get the same
live life so that you will be sorely missed
and each one says good after your name
