समर्पण एक चकवा - Surrender

Meera, in surrender
You found Life.

Surrender –
One track,
One goal,
One mean,
One bond,
One end,
A liberation;

Surrender –
One personality,
One prop,
One power,
One end,
One Martyr;

Surrender –
An initiation,
A sect,
A favour,
A sacrifice;

Surrender –
One man,
One bed,
One sacrificial alter,
One gratifying pain;

Surrender –
One-way sweep of a swing,
That never returns.

Surrender –
An ember dying, buried
Under a thick layer of ashes;
Surrender –
A never-ending illusion.

(Meera, also called Meerabai, is a saint-poet of India. Meera, like Kabir and Tukaram, is rebellion and contented, and bestows joy and courage on people. Her sainthood is not ordained by any institutionalised religion.)
