"I look in the mirror / And I see this body / With this color / That I am supposed / To give up identifying with / But somehow, / I can’t seem to see / Beyond the brown."
"Your merry rides have been thwarted, / Your house has been fenced, / Amazing you are, O mind, / You still don’t wish to be cleansed..."
" At my best of times, at my worst of times / I have always turned to and received the comfort and reassurance / of Mother Nature."
"Why do I have to die? Why do I have to suffer? / But wait it will not. That minute is gone now and / then another and another takes its place."
A poem by Ananda Vrindavan Dasi.
Unless you turn prudent and wise / You are in for a nasty surprise / In a world of birth, old age,disease and death / No one could ever escape their wrath.
A poem based on chapter "Transforming Lust into Love” from the book The Spiritual Warrior by Bhakti Tirtha Swami.
