I had learnt once

the skin has layers.


Time has taught me life’s layers

A layer each of youth, middle age, old age

A layer of love, compassion, pride, humility

And lying within

Layers of envy, greed and ego.


Throughout the day

Layers emerge

Throughout a life span,

layers expose.


You become near,

You become far

As each layer plays its part.


Somewhere in some layer

You search yourself.


In which layer are you lost?

  1. There are also the three layers of total ignorance in maya, seemingly acquired wisdom through spiritual pursuit and an enlightened awareness at the end.The self that is in constant search finds its place according to ones vasanas.and efforts
    A good one Bhagya.
