Modern World

A Poem by Nitesh Mahabal

When did you realize,
It happens too often,
Laying in bed awake,
With eyes wide open.

Your long journey,
From life to salvation,
Is cursed with them,
Dreams, hopes and expectations.

The sweet sense of attachment,
That feels so great,
Until when you look behind and realize,
You’ve arrived too late.

The only things that’s sticks,
Through you high and low,
Is always with you,
Your own shadow.

In the hopes of betterment,
You feed yourself lie,
Time keeps ticking,
And life just passes by

Indeed, life does keep passing by. But you have learned a lesson about attachment. Unrestrained, it leads to heartbreak. And your shadow is not the only thing that sticks with you, especially on cloudy days. Your awareness, all of it, is ever with you.
