Myriad colours of earth
Jealousy won’t take you anywhere,
Finally you will end up as a fool
Better live like a child
Who whole-heartedly admires beauty
Then tries to capture that beauty!
They never get jealous of anything,
But for the attention of their beloveds,
Even then they cry for it, beg for it,
Rarely do they try to harm others,
While admiring, loving be a babe!
