With only the ticking of the clock on the wall
The tapping raindrops on the roof
The splashing sounds as they hit the ground,
As gray clouds hover over the gloomy sky above
Mind drifts to wander with thoughts of the distant past
A perturbed soul searching for answers,
The questions no one can even decipher.
The deafening silence puts me in a trance,
Makes me sail away to a different dimension
Trying to untangle confusing dreams,
That makes me lie awake in the wee hours of the night
Where am I? Who am I? Why am I here?
It is in silence that answers come rushing through,
When you can listen to what your heart is trying to tell you.
My mind is in a labyrinth-like maze,
Blinding lights chasing my shadow to illuminate my dark path
As I await for the Perfect Time when all these would make sense,
The deafening silence whispers his thoughts to me
Bringing me back to this chaotic reality,
My home is not here but in the heavens one fine day
When the Master up above calls me, then I can’t make myself stay…
