What You Seek, O Human?


What do you seek from Life?
What do you seek from the Divine?
Health, wealth or peace from Sunshine?
Or the ultimate blessings of the mighty Divine?
What do you seek everyday from Life…
Have you ever discussed it with family or Wife?
The needs, the wants…or any urge that haunts?
The greed, the grants…or the societal pressure that commands?
What do you seek from Life… O Human?
Pockets full of money for a luxurious Life…
Or hands full of giving to improve another Life?
Kids draped in the best, that may not be of use tomorrow…
Or the street kids draped in warm, so that they survive tomorrow?
What do you seek from Life… O Human?
Heaps of food in gold plates…that might even go waste…
Or enough morsels for those who might dig from the waste?
A huge house that has just your family to share….
Or a nice warm house bustling with those who have no parents…but need love and care?
Think, O Human… What you seek from Life…
Think O Human, What you must seek from Life!
