Within the circle of experience
Life revolves for many of us
Revolting against the world beyond
We close the door to our hearts.
Senses five, with experience manifold
Caging us in deliberate ignorance
Wanting not more of our being
We become prisoners of our own selves.
Across the circle, a world vast lies
Beyond the reach of our eyes
We all know that very well
Yet, within our ignorance we dwell.
Lugubriously we walk with cheerful mask
Cheating the world and ourselves too
For us this world within the circle
Is itself too much to bear and bask.
