Our life abides within;
Our outer sheath is a cloak
Ignorant of truth sublime.
Outside the more we block,
The deeper within we go.
We all are nature’s slaves,
Ignorance vast we hug.
Even death our Spirit braves
Alas! in vain for us.
We cry to live in chains
With blind personality.
Before us the sombre main.
