The Healer Within

My first take on spirituality through a poem.


The anguish, the fury,


that I ever sustained,


the child in me


 that had never complained.



The wounds of the soul,


that my little heart carried,


which could've been easily revealed,


but I chose to have them buried.




The adult in me was driven;


by ravenous ambitions,


and little did I know,


that it's a perfect recipe for frustration.




I started looking for peace,


I traveled far and wide,


some Saint, Guru or Mahatma,


who could show me the clear light.




As I sat, in the silence of my room one day,


unhappy, frustrated and confused;


there entered some filtered sun rays,


and magically my anger defused.




The silence had brought me


the answers loud,


the ones which I was


looking in the crowd.




My deepest fears were addressed,


and my soul was set free.


I learned to forgive myself and others;


as for healing, that was the key.




My spirit is elevated now,


to let my journey begin;


I am not afraid of old scars or wounds,


as I have my healer within.
