Unlearn


Learn the lessons
Strive, acquire, achieve & memorize
They said you need to be learned to thrive
To lead the life of comfort the life of pleasure
You were raw you were real
Innocent you were and you easily believed
The ideas of world, the ideals, the morals, the norms & values
And the codes of conducts they told you about so loud
And in the course of preparation for living
You forgot entirely to live in present, didn't you?
In the long run still unsure you are
If you have achieved what you strived for
But one thing is for certain
You have lost a lot, haven't you?
Where are those innocent eyes
Veiled by the lust & desires they gave you
And you accepted & rushed for so eagerly
Where is that trusting heart
Everyone's is filled with dilemma and doubt
No matter what you gain what is your wealth, pride & success
But all that is precious & real you have lost
In the rush to acquire secure future, haven't you?
Now is the time to unlearn all the lessons
Cease every struggle & accumulations
Now is the time to let go of all ideas & impressions
Witness beyond all fence
Break every walls of self consciousness now
Now is the time to flow with ever flowing river of existence

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
