Nothingness - Poem by Jayatissa Liyanage

From the day ‘I' viewed the first ray
All fell on line, to have paved my way
Being conscious of, the role ought to play
Treaded the path, idling, not a single day

There was a maximum that I could do
Nothing more, for anyone to know
Time is simply right, for me to go
I claim nothing, may you not show

Let everything that constituted ‘I'
Degrade decompose, ask not why
Be that the last will of, all ‘you and I'
Emerges NOTHINGNESS, ought not feel shy

Take back all what you've given me
Since then, never ever talk about me
Remember me, if at all, only for the deed
Devoted heart and soul, for you, indeed
