The Joy comes and goes;
The Sorrow returns and stays for some time;
They do not remain forever.

Peace replaces War
Then returns the War;
They do not remain forever.

Hunger, Thirst, Sleep, Desire,
Dream, Passion, Frustration,
Pain, Smile, Thought, Idea, Vacuum,
Lust, Jealousy, Kindness,
Selfishness, Empathy,
Belief, Commitment,
Body, Mind, Identity, Ideology, Ego,
God, Earth, Sky, Rain, Wind, Sun, Moon,
Nothing remains forever.

Even Life is not forever;
And Death too is not forever.

Only the Quest
To understand the meaning of the Existence
Remains Forever.
The baton is handed over
From generation to generation
With the same zeal.
