The Expressions of Peace
Writing this poem wasn’t my intent,
But what can I do my heart is filled with unexplainable content.
With the memories of my loved ones over which I can cry,
As they are the ones on whom I rely.
These feelings of love and joy overwhelms my soul,
More than a cake or a chocolate roll.
I face my hardships easily when I am with them,
It is as is I am wearing a miraculous gem.
When I am with them time sure runs fast,
So much, that I want it to long last.
Leaving all the stress and tensions behind,
With them, I can calm my own mind.
My loved ones play a vital role,
But how can I forget the nature’s toll.
The flowers that bloom and the clouds that hover,
Makes me feel silent and sober.
The sound of the footsteps of rain,
Release me from my momentary pain.
Sun that provides morning daylight,
Makes me shine even more bright.
I pass time next to a lake,
To contemplate for my own sake.
The forests and grasslands of green,
Helps me rest in serene.
Whether mountains, plains or marshy land,
I feel at ease wherever I stand.
I receive with open arms, love and hate.
As they are a ploy of my fate.
Even though, life is a bumpy ride,
I am always confident with god on my side.
Whenever I am experiencing a dreadful fright,
I recall him and find relief from plight.
No more I long for delight or thrill,
I have left few things on gods will.
Whenever an episode of my life is gray,
I turn to him; he always listens when I pray.
To be able to set free,
Meditation is a useful key.
Not only it destroys negative thoughts,
It comforts me from suffering of all sorts.
Future is something I can’t foresee.
So I live in the moment like a humming bee.
I have a bunch of life hacks,
To fill up all bothersome cracks.
I chose not to become an addict,
Rather I made my life as beautiful as I depict.
I no longer run after money,
And have thrown away all the past agony.
Comfort and luxuries, no longer I seek,
Despite having them I am at my life’s peak.
This fact, it took me all this time to learn,
But what can I do I am so stubborn.
Don’t confuse me with a saint,
I agree I am a little quaint.
Happiness and sadness; I do experience all the emotion,
But I am at peace even with the commotion.
For this life and my optimistic attitude,
I give god my gratitude.
Thank you for bringing in me this change,
For blessing me with your omnipotent range.
