In the journey of life

Ruchika Srivastava: “In the journey of life, allurements breeze in

Choice is given to us, we refrain or entertain

Pursuit of happiness in the wrong terrain,

Make results uncertain, for a person lamebrain.

On the boat of desires with mind as captain

We go with the flow, caught in illusion’s enchain.

Ups and downs on the way, send us the warning

Of dangers underlain

We feel the stress and strains

Of material nature uncertain.

Then one day finally comes the storm,

Our feelings of attachment twisted and torn

Create a pain, difficult to explain

Makes us realise, all our feelings were in vain

Lost and shattered we look for a guardian

Who then reminds us of Krishna’s divine game

We are not here for any material gain,

Serving the Lord, is our duty main

Served the senses time and again

Mind’s duty is to mistrain

His mercy is pouring like incessant rain,

But are we holding the umbrella

of selfish desires in brain.

Until we are totally purified, experiences are there to train,

Before the next storm comes, hope the lessons learnt retain

In the end, only Krishna will remain

Don’t forget to thank Him, be it pleasure or pain.”

Thank you

Your humble servant

Ruchika
