(Be)longings

Let me retire to my belongings
And stay away from stray longings
For the abundance of everything I have
For the impermanence of anything I aquire
To avoid the scars of unfulfillment
Let me dissolve the mountains of desire
Into the calmness of lake
For the mind’s sake
Let me balance
Let me be in equilibrium with my surroundings
Let me celebrate everything that I have
Not look for replacements
That would cause displacements
Let me attain a state
Where ‘with’ and ‘without’ mean the same
Let me settle for my worth

(Uttam’s pen)
