Almost everything in life is controllable,
Fear; illusion; destruction
Except for time, tide and Karma*
It’s something that is endless,
Never pausing for a moment
To wait for us to catch up.
Don’t let the time go by
Unnoticed and unlived
Be conscious of the way
It slips from our hands.
There is no pause button on the time wasted
No caste, creed or religion can ever halt the time.
The universe conspires
Offering unstoppable life in action
For, it never does retreat
In glory or in death
Our glory is history
Our deeds legendary and our battles bloody.
Sooner or later
Our Karma catches up with us
Relieving us of our burden
And setting the records straight.
Riding on the tides of our actions
We reap as we sow.
Karma* – (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. It is good or bad luck, viewed as resulting from one’s actions.
