Where are you operating from? Introspect and affirm How much do you really know yourself? Care to pick one shelf? At the bottom of the triangle lays ignorance And to get out of that, you'll need self-cognizance Ignorance breeds anxiety and fear Both cloud judgement and make things unclear Up above ignorance lies the aura of passion Motivated people keeping their eye on a vision While it's a commendable leap from brewing in ignorance Ruminating in passion may give rise to indifference Above these, hails the crown of goodness The only realm to witness the feeling of fullness It's just that, elevated levels of compassion Are frail to any other motive, in comparison Just a few pensive moments To figure out the self and its components How much do you really know yourself? Care to pick one of these three on the shelf? Self ignorance is not necessarily a bad state of being Acts stemming from fear, habit, and conformity aren't very freeing It's just not a very fulfilling life Hence, within, it may cause some strife People who aren't in sync with their inner person Miss the opportunity to transform into a better version Because passion leads to accomplishments Which can fetch you accolades and compliments After tasting the fruits of passion, some move beyond To this call, however, not many respond Pure goodness not only has clean intentions It's about transcending holistic passion into harmonic dimensions From a hollow void to glory Thereafter to share the joys of a finished story!
