Traditional Nepali Song
What did you bring to the world?
What will you take away? It’s all just a two-day fair.
You don’t have many days to stay, traveler.
And you still take pride in false identities
—riches, youth, and appearance.
You came with closed fists;
you will have to open them when you leave.
It’s all just a two-day fair.
