Age old dilemma



The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity answered” Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money, then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about His future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being the he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived......Dalai Lma


It has remained and been age old dilemma

But spelt well now by others and Dalai Lama

What we had understood about real life?

Was it merely passing time with very good wife?


That may be one good aspect

We failed to understand it and respect

It has always been a mystery and mirage

Lots of thesis can be written on long pages


Think of poor people who have nothing eat!

Look after family and children with two ends to meet

Very difficult to understand the philosophy in real terms

When situation is so tidy and cruelly turns


He has no where to go but fight to fill hunger

So much rage inside with lots of hatred and anger

Whole world seems against and remedy for poverty

Where is the time to remember good thing and almighty?


Those who have enough of means try for more wealth

They need enormous even at the cost of their health

Humanity is just farce and no value for human being

They want to have sway allover and rule as king


It may be naïve to discard such theory

It is cause of concern and worry

We spend the life in pursuit of money

There leaves less time to enjoy the honey


Life comes to an end when everything is in hand

Lots of relatives wait for speedy departure at the end

Since you have failed to realize happily with wealth

They want lion’s share after your early death


This dogma has remained for ever and may continue

No one has come out of it even after repeated review

It is mirage hunt that keeps us in fray

We are running after it and always going away


Some individuals successfully come out of it and enjoy

For them life is mission and should be continued with joy

It is likely not to come in thousands of years

So live up to full length even if some agony comes to bear
