Renouncing the world

I think I will renounce this world
all I will need is a room that will give me
a cool effect and total comfort
when the sun is blazing its heat.

I think I will renounce this world
All I will need is a room that will give me
a warm feeling of being under a quilt
when the cold outside is unbearable.

I think I will renounce this world
All I will need is food so tasty and delicious
to satiate my hunger and also ensure
that I don't starve myself.

I think I will renounce this world
All I will need is to stock my locker
and house with wealth so much
I never need to earn for many lives to come.

I think I will renounce this world
All I need is a robe to hide my real character
and lure people to sacrifice their all
not so difficult task it would be.

I think I will renounce this world.
the wealth and pleasures that mankind crave for
I have derived them in a short span of time
by playing around with the belief of many.

A simple robe and act of being God or his messenger
has done the work for me
So why should I not go ahead and announce
I am renouncing this world

PS: It seems to be dripping with sarcasm...well..with our yogis and saints being in the news in a negative sense...the belief that we have is weaning to naught..

Dear Lakshmi,
Good Morning!Well written verses.
I was wondering what you are pointing at!This has happened many time in Kerala and everywhereelse.Many are receiving the photos by mails.
Believe in God,not in representatives.

Wow.You have torn the veil of so many fake men masquerading as Godmen and duping the gullible.The true saints would shun publicity and be insular in far away caves and mountainous regions not easily accessible.Such divine personages are not easily visible to ordinary men and women and only the sincere and deserved can sight them.
A beautiful poem.Thanks

Hey Lakshmi,
Thats a very well written post and extremely this world where show business is on the rise...many time people say things and preach them without practising.
Its always good to live a balanced life and feeling the presence of the Almighty with every breathe that we take.
Thanks for the lovely post and have a great week ahead!!
