SALINI NAIR

Stillness


Lost all loved
Foundation of stillness

Lost all dreams
First pillar of stillness

Lost all support
Second pillar of stillness

Lost egoism
Third pillar of stillness

Lost temper
Fourth pillar of stillness

Vagueness
The roof of stillness

Sink in tears
Purified the self

There erect a wonderful self
Behold the courage crafted

There arises a brave human
Silently in some corner! ! ! ! !

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
