New Moon of Life by Rajendra Ojha

Like the moon, our life changes its phase—

each time in a circle of 'Law of the Universe'.

So, think once, dear people of eternal time,

What's the use of flowing salty water from our eyes?


Isn't our life like the phases of the moon?

When we reach this stage of our life,

We transform into full moon.

The second time, we convert into 'Waxing Gibbous'—

Before finally transforming into 'New Moon', again.


If we look closely at anything in our lives,

everything is similar to the ‘Sun’ or the ‘Moon’.

During the phase of 'New Moon',

 The 'Sun' still supports the 'Moon' through its light.


To enter into the world of good 'New Moon',

We must have a wonderful time with 'Waxing Moon'.
