Pilgrimage-Phusathi Liyanaarachchi

“Your body is your shrine”

said you…


a whole lifetime ago…

you abhorred the slightest touch

of an unknown…

Yet today you stand

visited by many.

“A pilgrimage?”

but never were you worshiped. 

there were 

but lusty prayers

by god’s followers,

so called.



weren’t all they  got

but SOME of what you lost.

Your smiles no more 

reflect your soul,


a masquerade

to your tortured whole.

Yet none of them

are as pure

as you

of desires

them cure!

You may still say your body is your shrine


only you are it’s residing divine.
