The Heart of a Yogi

 In the eyes of every yogi there is sadness

And dear ones left behind.

A yogi feels kindness

Towards the suffering of the mind

Of those caught up in the never ending

Place of being best, first, having this

but also that. No end, no beginning,

Chasing the tail of happiness, but never bliss.

Contentment, compassion, self-study…

Here are some of the jewels hidden

In the heart of a yogi.
