Empty Hands

Reborn here now without baggage, when from the last life I was gone, I took nothing in my carriage, the outcome of karma well done. Mission completed, I return, reborn here now without baggage, solely with God’s grace in soul’s urn to spread the light of His message. Flying away from the life’s cage, divine freedom my soul has known, reborn here now without baggage, for I desire nothing to own. I was born once with empty hands, played my part unattached on stage, carried nothing, for thus He planned, reborn here now without baggage.

It was a close call to decide between your poem and William’s for the top position; both being exceptional, to my mind. CK grata on your win, Subimal. Thank you for participating and look forward to your entry in the next Quietus contest coming up!
