What Is There In Our Body - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

You see only skin
Below the skin the flesh
Below the flesh the bone
Below the bone the marrow
We are really living in sorrow
With these phlegm, pus
Spittle, stool, sweat, saliva, snot
Excretes, urine,
O my dear, You are within
That is the only reason
Of our living.
