Keep yourself Deprived


The best in you has yet not arrived
So keep yourself a bit deprived

If every greed is instantly gratified
Greater need to grow will never rise
A feel of the feather of failure
Will make the city of success allure

The best in you has yet not arrived
So keep yourself a bit deprived

Go hungry for few days at a stretch
You shall cultivate a habit not to waste
View once poverty stricken society’s appearance
Never to forget the prayer for your circumstance

The best in you has yet not arrived
So keep yourself a bit deprived

On suffering a due dose of scarcity
Makes you save the abundance for posterity
Moreover misery is the master who creates
A condition in which your steel self awakes

The best in you has yet not arrived
So keep yourself a bit deprived

    Being deprived deepens your sense of self and you can find strength within yourself. You don't need all the things you desire, they tend to lessen your perspective and bring misery to your heart. Through deprivation and misery we are awakened to what we may become in the future.

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
