God, I reached the pinnacle of success
And yet, in my mind’s deepest recess,
I know there was a link missing
To calm down my heart’s heaving.
I traveled extensively in modes of transport diverse,
Where various routes of beliefs converge.
With intelligence uncanny and silence crystalline,
My troubled thoughts standing in a line,
Sadness seething deep inside my pores,
Feet swollen and painful with sores,I
I traveled a lonesome journey of great heights,
Always spreading my arms to light.
He who seeks finds,say the sages,
Though fallen in agonizing abyss of cages.
I was progressing as a pilgrim,
Pursuing choicest of my heart’s dream.
I could hear soft and intoxicating hymns
Bubbling in my ears and filling my heart’s brim.
Spreading the canvas of my memory,
I erased thoughts of all category.
I loved the emptiness
In the middle of nothingness.
I looked at the glinting dews on roses,
That shone like pearls in showcases.
In a loving, imploring voice,
I called for God with grace of my choice.
I heard His voice reverberating in the valleys
And I ran in between the flowery alleys
To see which part of God is mine,
Which He has granted with a heart kind.
