In Spite Of Trying

In spite of trying

I have forsaken willingly large material treasure
Only to conquer you,
I have ignored hidden lust and greed
Only to impart my adoration,
I want all that no one has gaind-
Your spiritual sublimity
And now I am ready
To sacrifice even more
If there is left and remains.

When I was thinking so in today's morning
The sun came out
The eastern sky was still hazy
The mist engulfed the surrounding
And the sun was not in a hurry.

Oh! I felt
What a foolish man am I,
I could not leave my pride
And still count what did I,

I am still engrossed in my loss and gain
I am unable to be the sun
In spite of trying to be in vain!

    I felt
    What a foolish man am I,
    I could not leave my pride
    And still count what did I,

    I am still engrossed in my loss and gain
    I am unable to be the sun
    In spite of trying to be in vain/// this type feelings help the discover the self; good write on knowing thyself

    Loved the poem because of its spirituality. Your efforts at conquering spirituality is appreciable.
    'Oh! I felt
    What a foolish man am I,
    I could not leave my pride
    And still count what did I' - after all, we are human beings. To err is human.The realisation of one's own folly is a right step towards attaining spirituality.
