141. Garment

Tailor, what garment have you stitched?

Sometimes, it is short,
Sometimes too long,
Sometimes it is loose,
Sometimes too tight.

No alteration works,
No garment fits,
How long will I suffer?
How long will I wait?
I must find a new tailor.

What did you just say?
Your skill is not to blame!
Yes, you are right, tailor,
The fault is with me,
Not with your garment,
It is me I must alter.

Very good poem :) If God is the tailor and garment is our physical body, then yes, it's important to purify/alter our soul to suit and fit our body and refine our character to reflect in our behavior.

Well written Onkarji! :)
