I refuse to be doomed!

Updated on March 9, 2016

Shaloo Walia is an astrologer and tarot reader. She is an Art of Living teacher and also an ardent Krishna devotee and a follower of ISKCON.

Random thoughts zooming in and out

Bitterness, frustration, jealousy, anger, revenge…

Pullling me down further and further…

Into a fathomless pit of negativity.

Nothing to gain but everything to lose…

Smiles goes first and Peace of mind the last…

As a victim entrapped in Octopus’ tentacles,

My mind writhes with agony, yearning for freedom.

Let go and surrender is the only remedy, I know

Yet the stubborn mind refuses to be tamed…

Withering by its own poisonous thoughts,

It is dying slowly day by day.

A desperate cry for redemption…

I refuse to be doomed!

With Krishna as my saviour,

There should be no reason to gloom.

Love and devotion is my panacea

To weed out all that is unwanted…

And all that remains is

Miracles of His amazing grace!

      Beautiful expressions and I loved your title!

      A look at 'Him' and the chanting of 'His' name can relieve you of all worries and fill you with 'Hope' and strength---that's the power of 'Krishna.'

      Thank you Shaloo for this beautiful hub, very inspiring!

      @Missy I hope you are calm and happy now! I just returned home after a blissful week in the presence of my spiritual master. I remember I used to be always sad and depressed. Meditation and other spiritual practices helped me a lot. Try meditation Missy. It works wonders!

      As I write this comment to you now, I have awakened out of sleep because my mind is troubled with more than one thought tonight. I'm glad I read your poem at this moment, swalia. It's a great reminder that we must not allow ourselves to be pulled down. We should surrender to the creator, and he will fix it the way he sees fit. He and only he can settle my mind. Thanks for sharing!

      Fantastic - very uplifting and something I can well relate to. That big let go and let God.
