River of Pain

Rowing rowing all I have been doing

Knowing not where to move or go

Hands pain, shoulders ache mind gone

Mirages, visions, reflections all I see

Never knowing I am in ocean middle

Rowing in circles rowing long hours

Tired I sleep yet the hands row

Swollen intestines parched lips

Hunger and thirst break me within

Horizons seen everyday is a mirage

Terra firma deludes me every moment

Ocean all around yet it creates fear

I know death is near for it was always

None gets out alive from the ocean

Pain and suffering is my quest for life

Ocean of death and life lives on me

More I pain more I suffer it grows big

Larger waves surround me everywhere

Drowning or dying all mean the same

Waking up only will shatter the veil

Ocean of pain will vanish leaving peace

Piece or peace is all game of mind

Win the soul to silence the mind

Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
