Poem30.What is Mine?

What is Mine?

what is mine?
 this body, mine?
are the body parts mine?
the thoughts or sleep ?

I should have,if its mine,
 control complete over these.
if I control my body,
 diseases do I have ?
if I control body parts,
 heart attacks,should I fear?
if I control my thoughts,
mental troubles,do I worry?
if I control sleep then,
do I think of getting up?

all these,I say as mine
not mine sure really .
 really mine, is there any ?
now , the present is mine.
nothing else, oh,my dear.
