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!

      "Peace and contentment is what I need." Hoping you receive what you ask for. Especially love the ending of your poem, which is all good.

      Yes, my Sweet. You already know the answer. Seems the agony is part of the process. Nice message. Hari Ram!

      @manatita44 I was reading 'Teachings of Queen Kunti'. Queen Kunti tells Krishna that she wishes that all those calamities would happen again and again so that she could see Him again and again. Such devotion!

      Agony and sorrows are blessing in disguise as they bring us closer to the Divine.

      Yes, I know this story. My Teacher spoke of this, Kunti wanted much suffering, yes, but my Guru said that while there are exceptions, it is generally not the positive way. So let's wish for Love; more beauty; for more Light ...

      But yes, adversity does help us. I have written about this. The transient is remarkably powerful, and my Love goes out to you, where ever you are on this journey. Om Shanti!

      This is because we are not as evolved as Kunti. Instead of bringing the best out of us, adversity brings out the worst in most of the people. If only we could surrender to the Lord during challenging times, even they will feel like bliss!

      Peace is within us all, it is just up to us to find it. Well done.

      Yes aviannovice. We keep seeking outside while what we are seeking is within.
