A Long Night

Life is wailing in the cold,
A long night it has to pass,
By walking on embers of grief,
The sufferings tethered to past!

When this life will see light?
Hidden behind veil of time !
Darkened by misery of past
And blinded by hope of tomorrow!

Fear, desires, worldly attachments,
Let them melt with ego in the ‘Now’
Let life flourish in the meadow of ‘Now’
Let it cleanse itself in the elixir of ‘Now’!
