Lost in an Abyss of Apathy and Indifference
Lost in an abyss of apathy and indifference,
I did not see the dark signs of change,
Mirrored across the heavens.
Lost in self-pity and in blaming those
Who governed on my behalf.
I forgot my own strength, and like Hanuman,
Had to be reminded of my empowerment.
I forgot that those in power…
Went to similar schools,
Grew up in the same country,
Worked in adjacent neighbourhoods.
Who then to blame?
I became a victim, lost in a world
Created by my own darkness,
Forgetting that I was once a brick constructed,
Still dwelling at the foundations of the same Palace.

This Palace once had its own foundation
Quote from a Seer
"Do you want to be always happy?
Then give up fighting
And live the beautiful art
Of self-encouragement."- Sri Chinmoy.
