Through out the pathways, struggle, struggle!
Terrible, terrible, so vexatious, strongest!
For the struggle, for the struggle, struggle?
And in the struggle, in the struggle, struggle?
But oh, I am one, born to write, write, right!
Born for writing, writing, no rewrite!
Born with writing,writing, all won!
One oh writing, writing and born!
For what all this baffoonery oh quick?
For what raising so much bad luck?
For what, so become callous, all hearing, hearing?
Why turn ill-willed, so knowing, nearing?
Not so remember, nothing filthy?
Upto remember, all so worthy?
Then so remembered, nothing so wise!
So remember, oh very good and nice!
Nothing known, to the top, top-
Stands, so revolving, revolving, no tap,
All revolving, revolving!
One revolving, revolving!
I, so sat, not knowing anything-
I, so sat, not saying anything,
I so sat, not fearing, fearing-
I,so sat, as many things, nearing,
What so told to me?
What so told to you?
What so told to us?
What so told in between?
Elephant has an elephant head!
For a thousand,leopards, leopard heads!
For the horse, horse, so horse head!
And the last one mule, oh a mule head!
Coloured, coloured, coloured, the shadows?
Fragrance, fragrance, fragrance to shadows?
Virtue, virtue, virtue to shadows?
Have any truth, any truth to the shadows?
