When the devil is in your mind
What you will see in the temple?
When the anger is in your mind
Whom you will love in the chapel?
If you are thinking about a house
What you will find in the holy place?
When you are hiding like a mouse
What is the use of your huge palace?
When you do know what the truth is
Why are you reading the holy books?
When you don’t like any of the fruits
Why are you having so many knives?
You don’t blame the food you eat
When you don’t have appetite at all!
Why are you breaking the tennis bat
When you are unable to hit that ball!?
You don’t say that plant have thorns
In that plant there are rose flowers!
You don’t find the fault of others
You try to correct the fault of yours!
World is not enough for ones lusts
Here, no one is happy till he lives!
It is very easy to tell so many lies
Here, no one is perfect until he dies!
