Inspired Thoughts

eternal  peace flame
eternal peace flame | Source

When times are hard; things don’t seem right,

The fog is dense, and day seems night.

We’re insecure like thieves in flight,

The Path is tough; no love’s in sight;

We feel the pangs of fear and fright!

Do summon up your soul’s great might,

For we’re all children of the Light.


When fear and sorrow, pierce your being,

Seemingly attacked by things not seen.

And times are dark, the way seems mean,

You feel as though you’ve never been,

Alive to Light’s great love unseen!

Look to the Sun for radiance bright,

For we’re all children of the Light.


When lack of hope doth reign supreme,

Replaced by fear and inner screams.

No faith is there, no silent streams,

To calm the darkness of your dreams;

Life’s just not living, it would seem!

Hold on, somehow, you’ll get respite,

For we’re all children of the Light.


Adversity does help us grow,

To progress, march, green pastures more,

To see, to watch; to cherish so,

When from our slumbers we do glow,

As life’s great promise fills our pore!

Then we’ll be free as birds in flight,

For we’re all children of the Light.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier 25th May, 2013.

    " Though I am fond of garden, no doubt, yet looking at flowers with love, never do I neglect the thorns". This is translation of a Urdu Couplet written by Poet Jigar Muradabadi. Your sweet and charming poem exhibits this spirit very beautifully. Wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy new year coming soon !

    God always compensate. Here I am on a cold day in London, and you are having a mango in the Caribbean. Save a slice for me. Glad you liked this poem

    My thoughts exactly, but your poetic expressions are better than mine would be. Put down my mango so I could digest this. Thanks!

    Its awesome and above the extra ordinary in the faith of Almighty and the Light which guide us out from all darkness inside our heart and outside....my favs.....

    '.....To see, to watch; to cherish so,

    When from our slumbers we do glow,

    As life’s great promise fills our pore!

    Then we’ll be free as birds in flight,

    For we’re all guided by the Light.'

    Very inspiring with an eternal trust and believe about the bright light that waits us after every darkness. The darkness inside our heart is nothing else then the lack of wisdom about the Supreme truth which shows us always the way out to be enlightened. Thanks for this master piece here. Votes up and sharing..tweeted as well. Keep it coming. God bless you always

    regards
