remove your mind from daily life
be sure to dump all of the strife
for it will cut you like a knife.
since there’s no happiness external
all smiling comes from joy internal
and therein lies a knowledge kernel.
as now, you know, it’s all too clear
there’s many a thing for you to fear
to cap it all, death could be near.
imagine calm, a mellow scene
with sights and sounds oh-so-serene
a prana pure for you to glean.
