Be my saviour
Life thy ways are strange
Savouring success was my craze
True love was what I chased
Destiny had it all arranged!
I should be happy, life is great
Yet confusion and depression has become my fate!
Thoughts and thoughts, no rest or peace
Bottled up emotions which need a release.
Success and fame have lost its meaning
I am going insane, I need some healing.
Peace and contentment is what I need
Not the bitterness which in my heart breeds.
They tell me I have to let go
Repose in self and before the God bow.
Skepticism tells me it’s not true
Doubts and fears in my mind brew.
Why can’t I be happy, why can’t I trust
Leave negativity behind and put myself first.
Why I seek validation, why I seek approval
Why my life has to go through all the upheaval?
This has to stop, I can’t run anymore
Embrace my thoughts and pain I endure.
I have found my saviour and I surrender to the Divine
Sing, dance, serve, celebrate, meditate and make my life shine!
