"Name and fame are part of the game,
"Luck and fortune too are also the same,
"Dwell on the Master Writer of Fate,
"And you will not be the same man again".

These were the words whispered in my ear,
At an open mosque seeking a worshipper;
Quietly meditating I was suddenly attentive,
To the wise one but for me no one was near.

Mysterious and unfathomable are God's ways,
Of disseminating information via ethereal waves,
The gnostic who is in communion with Him,
Has to thank for being able to receive His Grace.

Sometimes when alone in the hills on a walk,
I come across a stranger and his sombre talk,
And often at nights when gazing at the stars,
My heart is lit up with divinity's spark.

All worldly ambitions appear as futile,
The rat race for money by many all the while,
The desire for pomp, glory and show,
Appears so short-lived as Pluto goes a mile.

So what the sages and prophets have said is true,
No deal should be made to pay the devil's due,
Desire must be checked and nipped in the bud,
So that the soul ends the cycle of being born anew.
