Did I hear you lament you are a failure
Yet just yesterday you said you were a success?
It’s not what I say but the proof lies before you
In my exams results.
Ah! The exam results…
And by the grade or points you
Have decided this
So tomorrow when you resit and improve
You become a success?
So why worry?
You yourself have shown
Success and failure
Is unreal, fickle and
Appears and disappears in moments of time
Daughters and Sons
Only the unreal changes
While the real never ceases to be
Your true self
Just like the limitless space
Where nebula gases appear
Havoc they may play
But none can divide the space
In just the same manner
Nothing can be added or deleted from
Your Atman, Your awareness
You remain mighty
Part of an infinite consciousness
Not a single success or failure
Will ever define you
For they will appear and then disappear
