Traders

We are all traders
Traders of society and religion
Traders of belief and possessions
Of life, virtues and emotions
And even of love...

And in trade
Purchases and sales
Follow their own
Dynamics and rules
Sometimes you are in profit
Sometimes in loss
A slave of desires
It's all your creation
Why do you repent then
Whether it's a loss or a gain?

The secret of success
And of course, happiness -
Don't act as a trader in life
When you are giving it
Give it with joy
With no eyes on return
Make a peace with unseen
And be contented with
Whatever comes.

A famous saint said it once
While in love
We often get pain
Not because we love
But because we want
It to be reciprocated
Back in return.
