Trishna

What do you stand to gain

If the body is dead?

What do you stand to lose

If the body is alive?

It is the mind

You need to wrestle and win.

If the mind is extinct

It matters not

If the body is dead or alive.

Subtle is the desire to exist

Which disappears not

With mere wish to be dead

And if you truly wished

To be forever dead

Why are you still thinking?
