Sometimes we have everything in life except peace of mind. Success, name and fame- all lose their meaning if we are not content and at peace. Surrender to the divine is the only cure to all our problems.
Life thy ways are strange
Savouring success was my craze
True love was what I chased
Destiny had it all arranged!
I should be happy, life is great
Yet confusion and depression has become my fate!
Thoughts and thoughts, no rest or peace
Bottled up emotions which need a release.
Success and fame have lost its meaning
I am going insane, I need some healing.
Peace and contentment is what I need
Not the bitterness which in my heart breeds.
They tell me I have to let go
Repose in self and before the God bow.
Skepticism tells me it’s not true
Doubts and fears in my mind brew.
Why can’t I be happy, why can’t I trust
Leave negativity behind and put myself first.
Why I seek validation, why I seek approval
Why my life has to go through all the upheaval?
This has to stop, I can’t run anymore
Embrace my thoughts and pain I endure.
I have found my saviour and I surrender to the Divine
Sing, dance, serve, celebrate, meditate and make my life shine!

Lovely poem. Great personalities through all ages too have had to face major upheavals in life. It is the Lord whom we should seek, stick to, and enjoy for there is no greater companion in life than Him…
Thanks! Indeed there is no greater friend than the Lord himself. When He is near, there’s no need to fear.

Really enjoyed your poem with delight. Many of my poems have come from seeking of the solace from the turmoils of the mind. Until there was surrender to divine. Very glad to have found your blog 🙂
