Mind plots revolutions,
But inner being wants harmony.
Life came with music,
But world moves by agenda.
Childhood was a pristine dream,
But wisdom turned that into a project.
Ambitions vault our existence,
Energy seethes from our pores.
But we came with a faith,
Our elements beckon tranquility.
There is a more sublime state than success,
World wants tumult but soul seeks stillness.
