Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?
 



Contemplation 

Realization 

All cessation 

In frustration 

Be reward 

Of mortication 

Be my goal 

And my salvation 

Could this life 

Ascetically 

Help me reach 

Nirvana free 

Or must I pay 

Some lifelong fee 

To get to where 

I'm knowing me 

Must I starve 

A path to where 

All I envy 

Gone and bare 

Cast solution 

Never mattered 

Let the calf 

Be born and fatted 

Grain of rice 

To quell the fire 

Douse the flame 

Of my desire 

To the past 

With my en-vy 

My earthly grasp 

In place of me 

Can we transcend 

Imperfect places 

Born again 

Of endless faces 

Can I stop 

This circle motion 

Nay return 

The cycle broken
