Mind over Body
Look at me when I am all dressed up
in the best Western clothes,
in the best Indian clothes.
Look at me when I am all dressed down,
Walking quietly down the road.
Body is just a vehicle carrying the mind.
Wear as you please, but mind the mind
The soul looks out through the window of the eyes.
Teach the living within to be beautiful inside.
With every passing minute, we are losing our life.
Make it worth the journey, by being a little kind.
So that when the road starts to cease,
Your insides will be able to rest in peaceful paradise.
