Theme: Life


What cannot be substituted
and also cannot be forsaken,
despite being conceptually known,
It still remains absolutely unknown.
Try denying That!
The very life itself will collapse.

Those who realized,
came to be known as the silent ones;
a la Siddhartha, the Gautama
Those who did not, grossly erred.

Yet, this is also true that Life,
the only constant that’s forever evolving, 
always eager to express herself
with all the grandeur of her diversity,
warrants friction. Humans are
no exception to this natural law!

No wonder then,
one appears absurdly inebriated
parroting the prompts,
manipulated or coerced
into a blind faith, creating identity crisis
and social divides.

That inexpressible ultimate sovereign,
meanwhile, manifesting as the nada anahata,
rhyming with every heartbeat, universally
remains blissfully invisible and carefree
even beyond the cosmic edge!
