Why Waste Away? – A Poem

Your precious wealth, why waste away
Gathering things you need not ever
And learning facts you heed not ever

Your precious strength, why waste away
Fighting battles you shall regret
And forging fetters you shall forget

Your precious voice, why waste away
Speaking ill of your fellow beings
And talking about trivial things

Your precious mind, why waste away
Troubled by unwise thoughts
Hollowed and weakened for naught

Your precious time, why waste away
Cursing the past, dreading tomorrow
Draining the Now, diving in sorrow

Your precious life, don’t waste away!
For there truly isn’t much to say
Connect to a timeless being
And realise
You have so much to celebrate…

Written & dedicated by Avneesh Shisodia
