Kannadasa Dasan writes


The journey of my life is very long!
My legs and heart have become hard!
Many relatives and friends have gone!
Still there is a lot of distance to walk!
The moon does not care about the earth!
The earth really doesn’t care about the sun!
All the men and women are also like that!
But yet all my duties I like to be done!
For nothing I don’t  even like to weep!
The ocean of my life is extremely deep!
Many crops of success are there to reap!
I know how to make humans clap!
I have a heavy load on my head!
Charcoal won't make the gold black!
I am always trusting only the god!
For name and fame I wont bend!
Let me not listen the false stories!
Let me not fall into disease!
Let me not be burden to others!
Let me die fast like the sparrows!
Somehow yesterday has been gone!
Tomorrow has still not yet come!
It  is only today now which I have!
Let me do all my today's jobs soon!

  1. Or, in the words of Dalai Lama XIV, "There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow. Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.”

    ― Dalai Lama XIV
