Three Aspects. Poem by Nabakishore Dash

Three Aspects.

Rating: 5.0

Three things never come back,
the lost time, the spoken word
and the departed soul.
Three things can not be
hidden long,
The sun, the moon and
the lies we tell.

Verbs come in
three tenses,
a man has a past, a present
and a future;
The past is gone,
the future is not known,
we should not mar our present
brooding over our past
and future expectation.

Three things come once only
in every one's life;
birth, lifespan, death.
Forgiveness, forbearance
Compromise are the
three pillars in life's path

Three things should be
practised in daily life;
Love, generosity and courtesy.
Three things should be
avoided always;
anger, lust and jealousy.

Men must learn from
the three wise monkeys statue
in the pictorial maxim in Japan.
See no evils, hear no evils
and speak no evils as
those are the best plans of action.

Hurry, worry and spiced curry
are the root causes for which
we become sorry.
Hence let's stay calm,
think for a while
and then leap into action
as life can not be changed
in a minute, but a minute's mistake
can generate a lot of
harsh conditions.

Aspects of good life.

I cite your words in the poem: See no evils, hear no evils and speak no evils as those are the best plans of action. So very true. These three monkeys lie on top of my bookshelf

In modern English, we talk of two tenses. There is no future tense. Future is an extension of present tense. We have no command over past, we can only rely on the present. A wonderful poem.
