The Buddha

This world is burning.
Afflicted by contact,
it calls disease a "self,"
for by whatever means it construes [anything],
...that becomes otherwise from that.
Becoming otherwise,
the world is
held by becoming
afflicted by becoming
and yet delights
in that very becoming.
Where there's delight,
there is fear.
What one fears
is stressful.
This holy life is lived
for the abandoning of becoming.
