My Lovely Cave
POETRY FORMAT, 5 Jul 2021
This is the Cave that I am living in
This is the Cave I invite you to come within
What do you expect to find here
There is no TV, no computers or newspapers
We don’t talk politics or political parties
We don’t listen to petty thoughts of what one can do
No egoistic feelings of how I am better than you
Then how do we survive in this limited space
We transcend our basic nature just like TMS does
We hope to remove our tension
And learn the act of meditation
We think of peace, spirituality, justice
And seek true happiness and bliss
Come, garner the thoughts of our seers and gurus
Enter a world of peace practiced by our real heroes
So my friend if you want to know what is Peace and Nonviolence
Come within, and go out happy overcoming personal tensions
This is what is called life with a capital L
This is what our faith makers tell us will prevail.
