Zero - Poem by Jay P Narain

The zero is round and round,

It does not have the beginning nor has the end,

It is the web of emptiness, it is the circle of infinity,

It is a closed loop which is the wheel of truth.

When you have millions, you have all the zeros,

when you have nothing, you have the lonesome zero,

When you look beyond the stars and skies,

When you look beneath yours bones and hide,

What you have is nothing, an eternal zero.

When we are alive, we protect our wealth and fame with jealousy,

When we die, we take nothing with us,

We all came with nothing, we all go with nothing,

The zero is the eternal symbol of nothing.

Look into our hearts, we have feelings,

Look into our minds, we have thoughts,

Look into our life, we have some meaning,

Look into our soul, we search for eternal peace,

A peace which gets us close to Nirvana and to nothing.

    From Maths to metaphysics
    Zero to Nirvana
    Only you can achieve!
    Your thoughts when they
    Spread wing they encompass
    The beauty of spiritual things!
