The Wisdom of the Ring : Even This Will Pass Away

The Wisdom of the Ring : Even This Will Pass Away

In my dream saw a strange thing, on my hand I had a ring
It had a maxim carved - strange and wise
Visible at a glance when held in front of eyes
The wisdom suited changes - life faces ever day
The Wisdom of the Ring was: Even this will pass away

Someone can find a lot of gold; someone can multiply money many fold
Another man might suffer worst of health; or may lose in a day abundant wealth
In any circumstance, calm & humble we shall stay, thinking: Even this will pass away…

Winning boosts pride to the world’s very top;
A loss makes us feel miserable, without any hope
Remember on your happiest and on the saddest of days
Pleasure & Pain come but not to stay, whatever you face: Even this will pass away…

(inspired by Ancient Wisdom)
