Spiritual journey is never easy. There are so many doubts and challenges on the path but only faith and devotion will carry you along. I am a devotee of Lord Krishna but there had been a time when I really doubted His existence. It was His mercy that I was pulled out of that dark phase and now I tread fearlessly on the path because I know that no matter what, Krishna is always by my side.
As the parched earth rejuvenates by the rain
And a little seed germinates and a new life is born,
A ray of hope kindles amidst this heart full of pain
And you stand there smiling as I mourn!
Are you the one? I doubt your existence
Every pore of my being is filled with resistance.
Queries and doubts rise like a serpent
And the anger in me began to ferment.
So many questions, so many accusations
I kept on and on till I exhaust with perspiration.
And you stand there smiling, not a word in defense
How could I understand the language of silence?
You captivate me with your smile and gently chide
Still not a word but the agitation subsides.
Smiling lovingly, you pulled me from dark abyss
In your presence, I am in bliss.
Under your hypnotic gaze, my soul nourishes,
Sorrow diminishes, joy flourishes!
