Prisoner Of Desires!

We are the prisoners of our own desires
And we are fond of our own built cages
The day we break free of our inner-selves
Is the day we are a step closer to God
The day we break free from the love of this world
Is the day we come closer to the garden of paradise
The day we snap out of these worldly bonds
Is the day our heart is enlightened with God's light
The day we fight with the lust for power
Is the day we are released from the chains of greed
The day the furnace of desires are doused
Is the day we are free from life's seduction
The day we lift the veil of ugliness from our hearts
Is the day we find the enlightened path towards God.

The day we break free of our inner-selves/the day we are a step closer to God-Fascinating lines. A beautiful piece of work..very nicely penned..Congrats!
Hi Aarzoo, A lovely philosophical poem, reflecting the noble teachings of the Vedas. May be Quran should be counted as the fifth Veda, which has taught you so much about the fallacy of living guided by your desires. Once we free ourselves from their clutches, the powerful light of hope and extreme faith remain to guide us ahead the spiritual Way. Great work. Let me quote: The day the furnace of desires is doused Is the day we are free from life's seduction. Loved reading the poem.10+++
You are right Aarzoo, but that day is the day of death. I think God wants us to pass the life in moderation and for that he has asked the men to follow a discipline. Your poem is beautiful and nice.
A r z o o, the great teachings of Lord Buddha, 'Desire is the root cause of sorrow', so nicely penned by you in your mesmeric stanzas.........
