So Am I...

So Am I...

A Poem by Vin

The King said:
"You are on your own walking bare foot and empty handed."
"why you don't need anything in this world?"

"Why you came to meet me empty handed?"- The mystic asked
'"'I'm just a visitor here"

"So Am I" - The mystic smiled.

We are all visitors and none of us knows how long our stay will be for. We arrive empty handed and we leave empty handed. What happens in between can make you a beggar or a king, but in the end the common factor is we will all become dust. That's where your lines took me Vin, this fine morning.

Empty handed of material not really being empty handed where it counts.'

I think despite our clutching, we all remain empty-handed. Great philosophical write, Vin:)

Chuckling here... Would that life worked out that way - good for stories, iffy in movies, bad in real life.

All of us are just visitors. Nobody is here to stay.
Beautifully penned, mate.

We all are, and so we should wander and see as much as we can, for later it will be too late.
Excellent ideas masterfully expressed as always.
