NOTHING TO GAIN OR LOSE

Repeatedly, I thought

I lost many bodies and relatives

Not only that,

Repeatedly, I thought

I lost precious wealth and position

Not only that,

Repeatedly, I thought

I even had all these

Repeatedly, I thought

Gaining and losing are unavoidable

Till, that moment of spark in me

Arose my intelligence

I felt,

They were my own!

How ashamed I am –

I lost my peace for something not my own!

How can I gain or lose –

When I am more worth than that?

I have nothing to gain or lose

I am – THE REAL
