Passage

Snug in mother’s bosom

The newly born

Rests in warm embrace,

Listening to mother’s heart beat

Love takes another form

In the friendship of mates,

Eating, playing and fighting,

Childhood moves on to youth,

The irresistible attraction

Of the opposite sexes,

Brings a fiery love

Through tempestuous adulthood.

This melts into paternal love

Losing sleep when a child is sick

Untold pleasure in his achievements,

And anxiety in his misfortunes.

Old age brings another love,

And lust for life

Seeking pleasures when pleasure recedes,

And love gets colder by the day.

Inexorably moving towards the end

The ultimate love lies ahead.

But through changing seasons.

It has been all the way.

Passage

Our constant march towards infinity,

Seems to have jeopardised the real identity.

What are we sent for?

Is it to experience the exuberance of Nature?

Or to plunge into an eternal race of rivalry,

Where a man devours his divine self,

And strives to show his supermacy.

Really a blind race, full of strife,

That has soaked the sap of human life.

O, Misguided soul,

Listen patiently the songs of divinity,

That’ll subdue the passion of brutality,

And lead you to the Great White Throne,

Which all of us must vie to own.
