Ever wonder why we are so dissatisfied?
Unhappy with our lot?
Closely watch what others have got?
Our relationships lacking somewhat?

Not quite sure if we are successful?
Mind and body not so zestful?
The only offender is our own deluded mind!
Restless, wanting – check and see what you find?

We invent our own unrealistic fantasies,
Obsessed with self-concern.
Seldom do we stop, look and learn.
Our habit is to project what our delusions expect.

I should look-like, be-like; have this or that.
“Why does she wear that hat?”
“He shouldn’t speak that way.”
Why does contentment stray?

Our own fictitious fables we want to see.
Never pausing to let things just be …
Have you ever tried to go with the flow?
Stop trying to direct your own show!

Everything becomes our own melodrama
And we are centre stage unaware of karma.
Self-grasping the only cause.
Let go and try to pause.

Accept your lot
Be glad of what you have got!
Calm and peace we can find
to others we become more kind.
