Long Journey from Mind to Heart: A Poem
Countless books befell these ever seeking eyes
along with a past pregnant with unfinished quests,
with all those unnoticed blessings in disguise,
but life just went on throwing in more tests.
Preying alertly for yet another sound
to come from Truth ever stingy, mute,
swimming out of lies after almost drowned,
with so much to debunk, so much to dispute.
Libertarian madness of studious mind
made me see the world somewhat upside down
wouldn't have been worse if I had gone blind,
despite the crowd around, I felt alone in town.
Then, from that well of some uncried tears
emerged a Muse never seen before
brought with her a balsam of healing cheers,
turned all tears into wine forever more.
With a peeled-off ego, its demands on others
every breath is now a sigh of relief,
no one more to blame, nothing ever bothers
with joy flooding thoughts and every belief.
Paying my debt now to that child inside
who deserved much more than my probing life,
I took him by hand for a happy ride
free from any turmoil, free from any strife.
So, if God really shared His image with man,
this child in my heart could qualify for it,
for both of them exist for a divine plan,
with one purpose in heart---to explore it.
There is no Truth beyond that one of heart
that's why I allow it to always guide me.
Am I only dreaming, but can't walk apart
from someone else in my shadow beside me.
