Sorrows and miseries and endless scars

Is this the fault in my stars?

The more I questioned, the more I lost hope.

With the doubts and fears, I couldn’t cope.

‘Why me?’ was what eclipsed my mind.

Is there no respite? Will God be never kind?

These endless thoughts were tearing me apart.

Bitterness and ill-feelings now reigned my heart.

Lost and lonely, I sought Divine Grace.

Be my saviour, show me the way.

Like a sincere seeker, I prayed with devotion-

Rescue me from this endless pit of depression.

There in His abode, I heard words of the Master

Thinking only about ‘me’ is sureshot recipe for disaster.

Pray and meditate, serve with smile.

Be in gratitude, make ‘giving’ your lifestyle!

      @Rajan Most people seek happiness in external things, forgetting that happiness lies within.

      when, i ignore "I",

      so do others.

      Isn't this the recipe for true happiness? Alas, not many of us understand this truth!

      I have lived a full life. I have no complaints at all and, in fact, I am filled with gratefulness. Why me? I no longer ask that question when bad times arrive. I simply move forward with my life. :)
