These days are lonely days

The soul now desires a companion

The desire grows from day to days

The mind no longer seek for an opinion


Sadly and quietly walking downtown

The mind from thoughts is drown

Lonely in the hut peeping through crevices

Engulfed with thoughts not of vices


Like a wanderer walking alone down the lane

The heart got covered with desires like a pane

The mind drifted in a narrow consciousness 

The soul is not deserted, but yet lives in loneliness 


No friends, and no acquaintance

Alone in isolation, has less significance

The soul prefer a place so solitary 

Chanting incantations like in a monastery  


The soul is always misunderstood

Everyone has lost the heart of brotherhood

Oppressed with the irony of life

Joy and pain played daily strife


Far away from pundits the soul lives

Far away from trouble the soul lives

To the market he barely go

To the farm he joyfully go


Oh life of that is lonesome

Oh life that is boredom

It is good for a snail to come out of the shell

SHe can make gain if character he buy and sell.
