The inner strength

The boundless blue sky

And the scions of silence

Know that man has an inner strength

Which runs parallel with saint’s strength.

Quintessentially, lovely poetry

Has spoken about it

And the angels have sung about it.


The hard-hitting truth

Seen by the star-lit eyes

Is that many a man has failed

To see the rich dimension

Of that inner strength

Which has manifold powers

To open up new vistas.


Keep not this inner strength

As a weed-spangled pond,

Suffocating, decaying with fears frozen

And confidence fading and weakening.

Flush out the debris, let it breathe.


Those who have been wise

In deciphering and using this strength

Have seen the power of love and light.

Many sick and dying ones saw life again,

The wounds healed, the pains subsided

And failure metamorphosed into success.

Orgasmic and seismic,

And the vortex of peace was achieved.

At the end of the day, everything evened out.


Dig out the inner strength

From the mines of your body.

Keep digging, feel the sun, feel the rain

And touch the dew to fill your heart

With courage, the only choice left to you

For amazing things are not easy to reach.
