What is a drowning person losing?

There is all conflict in the world.
Sometimes, the critic is there to
Lead you astray before you live
Are you aware?
I would keep the sensibility alive instead and be silent
And still be called mighty Annapurna* for lifetime.
Those who wish to mount me, can place their soft steps
On my hard mountain ground.
Your eyes should be like lake Rara*,
If you were to study
The capped mountain of my soul.
For, the soul needs to be reflected
If it is not seen as a thing and is formless.
Adherence to others
Comes as a forceful negation today.
Life is all unique to everyone.
It is always a perception to understanding
That makes meaning for life.
Living is all that it takes to die.
Before thinking to lose why don’t we foster instead
Like a sacred thread hung as a meaning.



*Annapurna is the tenth highest mountain of the world situated in the Annapurna mountain range of Gandaki province, north-central Nepal.
*Rara is the biggest fresh water lake in the Nepalese Himalayas located in Mugu district of Karnali Province, Nepal.
