The End of Suffering

“I will show you suffering, and the end of suffering.”
     — Buddha

The End of Suffering

Our lifetimes we cannot extend,
But the upside to comprehend:
When there is no more grief,
We get final relief,
And our suffering comes to an end.

Runaway Train

I sit on this runaway train
Watching the passing terrain;
There’s not much I can do
But accept doom is true,
And wait for the end of the pain.

The End of Suffering

It’s becoming convincingly clear
That the end of our suffering’s near:
Soon hardly a trace
Will remain of our race
‘Cause we’re leaving, and won’t reappear.

We Had A Dream

Our dream of justice has passed:
Life means oppression by caste;
But soon now, instead,
We’ll be equally dead—
Thank God, we’ll be free at last.
