In POETRY by Karma Dendup1 Comment

Losing it with deception,

Clouding my own false perception,

Believing my self-created occupation,

Lost myself!! and I still don’t have a reason.


Lying and speaking in contradiction,

Unimpressed by others,

What is it? This kind of delusion,

Lost, in this cloud of feathers.


Learning yet still unlearnt,

Studying yet nothing understood,

Never known the fire yet burnt,

Lost, serving this body which itself is lost in falsehood.


Lost in this maze of appearance,

Believing in the existence of things,

Enlightenment is now but a pretense,

Now my heart no longer sings.


Duties and responsibilities realizes existence,

Detachment and renunciation itself is freedom,

Non-enlightenment is the world seen through dense lense,

We are crystal clear kings serving our kingdoms.
