“Void” - A Positive Approach to Life

--- Shirsak Ghosh


Life gave a slapdash performance to somebody,

That loses their peace of mind.

Certain things are extremely incorrigible,

Some people want to relinquish

Through the journey of emptiness.

Some people couldn't understand

The real value of their life.

Nullity is there in some people's thoughts,

It's hard but you need to overcome them.

Stay away from the negative people

That loses your peace of mind.

Life is real; life is true.

The goal towards nullity isn't true.

You are a beautiful soul.

You are working to raise soul awareness.
