[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 6] “Temptations”


Murmurs echoed,

in the realms of this universe.

Words between  human soul and the eternal divine,

reflected from one ear to other;

A cosmic dance of spirituality.

The soul sought escape, from the trap of desires,

to which the divine replied;

How can you fight your distractions ,

when you have sundered away from your purpose.

Your ambition, your goal; hidden

in a mist of ignorance.

How can you fight your temptations,

when you have gulped

the poison of envy, lust and greed.

Build your fort of temperance ,

let not your accomplishments go in vain.

Wreck the arrogance of your critiques,

Build your setu of  destiny.

Like Rama, 

destroy the pride of the ocean.
