Listen O you! the worshiper of almighty
The admirer of lord, the supreme deity
You admire the lord the master of the living
The great, the mighty, peaceful and forgiving
The creator of of worlds – the heavens and hell
And the wonderful earth on which we dwell
He created love, and peace and affection
He created gratitude, humility and devotion.
But O the Admirer, please ask your lord
If everything around is his accord
Then why are there sorrows and tears and pain?
Why is the world ruthless, uncaring and insane?
Why is there anger and deceit and sin?
Why does a person fight his own kin?
Why are there earthquakes and droughts and flood?
Why is there terror, stained in blood?
O seeker, the inquisitive, intelligent and wise
Take a greater view and you shall realise
That joys of achievement, satisfaction and gain
And tears of sorrow, misery and pain
Are all just ways and means to find
A joy ecstatic, and peace of mind
The will to live stems from fears
Smiles are cherished by those who have tears
We do unite in times of despair
And realise the common bond we share
That feelings of affection and hatred exist
Are reasons that we still persist
So cherish the tears which you try to avoid
As they are the reason for your existence in void…
