A part of God is mine

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.
