Passage

Where is the peace, the wishful thinking of us all?

Where is the law and order, the basic desire of each and all?

We look for a thing, which we have seldom

wished for from our genuine heart.

How to get rid of this rotten society where

everyone is sick, but calls himself healthy?

Life is short but the wish to live is too long.

The more and more we are heading towards death.

The more and more the allurements of the world

do seize us,

The germs of discord and dissension prey on us.

And life is reduced to a mere dream;

What a strange world this is indeed, which keeps

us all restless and dissatisfied;

Perhaps this is all the leela the play of Maya,

entrapping us all.

O God! You have made us all slaves to Maya,

seizing us from all sides and keeping us disturbed;

I don’t know what is good and what is evil,

I fail to distinguish between Maya and reality, the

foul and the fair,

As if being born in this world was a punishment;

Are we condemned to live in this hell once and for all?

Where we have to come again and again to suffer,

God! Make us get rid of all that glitters but is not gold.

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.
