Meaningless! Meaningless!

Everything is meaningless

All that you strive for is meaningless

All that you care for is meaningless

Everything is meaningless!

Oh! Foolish mind!

Naked and empty handed you entered this world

And that is how, you will soon leave it!  

Yet, why is it that  

You struggle, strive and hoard!

Pleasures of the senses

A respite it may seem

But they too are meaningless

Eyes can see, and ears can hear

But appetite can never to satisfied

In the trap of pleasure, only the flames of cravings grow  

Hence this too is meaningless!

Billions were here before you

And lived lives of glory

Yet you remember no one!

Like them; you too will soon be forgotten!

All of your love, hatred and glory  

All of your passions

And all of your achievements

All of them will be gone with you!

Hence they too are meaningless

Living now, you fear death

But the dead fear nothing

Sunrises and sunsets keep following

Seasons change

Generations come and go

The river of time flows on!

With or without you!

So let not the ego fool you

Before the pitcher is broken

Before dust returns to dust

Of foolish mind! Please do realize

Meaningless! Meaningless!

Everything is meaningless!
