My Soul is Yellow Today 

People care too much.
How their hair looks
or their clothes.
They don’t care about what matters
The soul
The soul is what truly matters
that thing that is deep inside.
The soul is always fashionable
no matter what the season is.
The soul is something that changes color a million times
from when you are born to when you die.
My soul is yellow today
because I’m happy inside.
On Thursday my soul was green
for I envied another girl.
The soul is by far the best accessory you can have.
And that’s what they should write in the magazines.

Poem title: The Greatest Accessory Of Them All

Author’s note: I wrote this poem at the age of Twelve… or was it Eleven? Anyways, those were ‘deep’ and emotional years for me, and I hope you like it… Peace.

One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
