Path To Enlightenment - Poem by Haden Chua

Victories and losses faded under a light so dim,
Trophies and certificates stacked a ream.
Fame and pride cling on to an empty name,
Fear and worry fuel a meaningless dream.

Greed, hatred and delusion cloud the mind,
A blur and foggy vision satisfy the eyes.
Mundane happiness is built on illusion and lies,
Leading to pain and sorrow ready to thrive.

The paths of extremes that have been tread,
Relating to the stories that have been read.
Supreme path of all is to be found in the middle,
Demolishing the renowned Cartesian theatre.

An enlightened mind transcends the web of lies,
Realising the laws of the universe that created life,
Compassionate, kind and fearless one becomes,
Shedding false belief that is preparing to come.

Oh, what a beautiful path to Enlightenment lies ahead,
Which is open to all who possess faith and courage!
