Beg


As important as giving

Is the art of receiving

For what goes around

Must come around


Learning from the really humble

Go around with a begging bowl

Break the barricades

Make the ego shatter


If you have enough

Beg for those who don’t

Beg for the hungry, beg for the poor

Beg for the unskilled, beg for the very sick


For pride is subtle

And the cause for the fall

Of the greatest giants

That ruled any land


‘Tis not an easy task

To live on the mercy of others

But it is the quickest way

To develop deep compassion


Gratitude will abound

If you have starved

Complaints will vanish

If you have striven


Receive with grace

What comes your way

An insult or a throne

It should matter naught
