Nothingness - Poem by Satheesan Rangorath


I was born to nothing,
Nothing that I brought.
Off to nothingness I trek.
Nowhere had I destined.

I got life to know myself.
Nothing I know helps.
I learned barely any.
But, nothingness follows me.

One day I learned nothingness.
That is nothing but emptiness.
I am nothing but nothingness.
I know nothingness is fullness!

Fullness is nothingness too.
Therefore, I smile n’ laugh louder.
laughter of weightlessness.
I dumped world as my dream.

Now, I fly freely rootless in air.
From flower to flower I glide.
On sea of uncertainty, I walk,
dancing on lotuses, as butterfly.

When I stampeded this world,
treasures a lot I grabbed.
When I am ready to depart,
Let me show you my hands empty.

Something that I learned now,
that I know nothing; that I am.
Let me plough, weed n’ till my mind,
to sow some seeds of exotic flowers.
