Bondage And Attachments - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Nature when created by God
sought a camouflage called Illusion
which forms the base for the
cycle of births and deaths
that is most powerful next only to God
which spins a web around every mortal
entrapping the lives in bondage
attachments and selfishness
neither death is a tragedy
nor birth is a pleasure
possessed by illusion the MAYA
react the humans with wails and elation
like an unwary traveler falls into
the pit covered by grass and leaves
humans fall into the well of materialism
filled with bondage and attachments!
