To Be Desire-Less Is Pleasure-Less - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Dream is born of desire;
By dream multiplies desire.

Desire is born of lust;
By desire flourishes lust.

Lust is born of jealousy;
By lust bulges jealousy.

Jealousy is born of insecurity;
By jealousy deepens insecurity.

Insecurity is born of neglect;
By insecurity worsens neglect.

Neglect is born of contempt;
You be away from such contempt.

Being away will give you relief;
The relief, in turn, will give peace.

But the world you miss.
To live, then, is of no use.
