AN ILLUSION
 
Neither here nor there
Life is a round sphere
An empty dome with no sound
Your own voice keeps going round
Nothing to give, nothing to take
World is a system fake
Blue sky is an illusion, dear friend
Existence is just a flimsy trend
Life machine keeps ticking
Till the day it stops hissing!!
The curtain falls
Lights go out
Darkness, darkness, darkness
Silence !
Silence !!
Silence !!!
Shanti!!!*
 
* shanti=peace
