Problems, Problems are everywhere

My life is in such a mess

I feel so sad and miserable

With worry, anxiety and stress


It all started when I was a child

My exams made me cry

And then, it was heartbreak

I looked up at the sky and asked ‘Why?'


And then, I tried to succeed

But failure came in the way

My life was full of sleepless nights

I faced problems every day


I was worried and there was fear

And this stress cost me very dear

I had anxiety attacks in my mind

My depression left all Peace behind


Everybody has problems as I looked around

There is hate and revenge on the ground

Jealousy and anger are here and there

The problem monsters are everywhere


But then I stopped and I took a pause

Everybody has problems but what is the cause

Who is the one who suffers the pain

I searched for the answer, not in vain


I could see the misery of the mind

Suffering of physical pain, a different kind

But far worse was the agony of the ego

This triple suffering was part of the show


So are we meant just to cry and to die?

As the problems trouble, must we just lie

Aha, no! I found there was a magic

One solution with a clear logic


Who is it that suffers the pain?

Body-mind-ego cries again and again

But when I Realized I was the Divine Soul

There were no problems, I achieved my goal


My problems disappeared like the morning mist

Peace, Joy and Bliss I kissed

It was when I Realized the Truth

When I went to the bottom of the root


We suffer because of our ignorance

Problems are because we are blind

We think we are the one that is ME

The body, the ego, and the mind


When we are Enlightened with the Truth

We can catch the evil brute

The mind is the biggest enemy of all

Along with the ego, it makes us fall


I saw the mind was full of junk

I tamed the monkey and made it a monk

And as I transcended all evil thoughts

All my problems I had fought


For the problems don't actually belong to me

Ignorance makes me live with the wrong identity

When I Realize I am the Divine Spirit

Then all my problems disappear with it


For then I know life is just like a dream

No need to worry, no need to scream

At the end it will be time to go

Forget your problems, it is just a show


Poverty is a state of mind

Don't you know you leave everything behind

But though we see this at every death

We are greedy till our last breath


Problems are many, but the solution is one

Realize the Truth and the battle is won

Enlightenment will leave all problems behind

Bliss, Peace and Happiness you will find


For problems are many, this for sure we know

But problems are all a part of the show

Nothing is real, we come and we go

When we realize this, problems are zero


Yes, it’s a magical solution but it’s true

All our problems will disappear like dew

The Realization of the Truth will remove all stress

And give us Peace, Joy and Happiness


The One Solution to many a stress

Is overcoming our ignorance

The moment we realize the Truth in life

We will have no problems, no misery, no strife

    How would those in poor countries see 'Poverty is a state of mind'? They are experiencing real hardship, poverty, etc.
