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.
