Some words need not
Our defining limits,
Or hours of tedious discourses,
Debating what they encompass.

Some words, they need
No tomes of explanations.
They’re better perceived
From the eyes of experience,
Of things that come to pass.

Give all without expectation,
That’s what love should mean.
Knowing but not abusing it,
That’s all that knowledge means.

Needing but not aching for it,
Is what contentment means.
Surrender yourself to life itself,
That’s what living means.

  1. You brought tears to my eyes my sis Pradita
    What a fabulous poem it is… I am awestruck. The last two stanza explaining Love, Knowledge, Contentment and Living were just fantastic.

    God bless you abundantly and may He give you more wisdom to impart… Learning from you… Absolutely overwhelmed… 😍😘
