Out in the river I could see
Golden light shimmering with glea,
I held my breath and gazed
With this beauty I was amazed.
Nature is so perfect, so pure
It is my harmony, my silence, my cure
And if you listen carefully,
That silence is so godly.
The flawless light led me through
Preparing me to what is True!
Suddenly, it carried me in midair,
Making me aware
And opening my eyes,
Just to make me observe and realise,
That things change, and people leave
What remains is what you believe;
Faith, my ultimate weapon,
Is my guard, my armor, where I could summon;
That secures me like a rope.
Strength and Power,
To face misfortunes of the hour.
Comfort and Peace,
Where my trust continues to increase.
Yet holding evenly to Faith is dense and hard on my soul,
As if I’m carrying hot burning charcoal.
As I am human after all,
And many are the times when I do fall.
Yes, I am far from perfect or supreme
I do have my sins, my guilt and misdeeds!
I sometimes feel weak and broken in two,
I get shattered not knowing what to do.
Sometimes I am hopeless and forlorn.
Poisonous anger pricking inside me like thorn…
Other times I feel empty and bare
Leaving me shiver with despair.
Oh that ego and its own bitter self
It just takes me away from the real Wealth…
But then I remember that perfect Light,
So I pull myself up tight.
Dwelling in that Faith of mine
Making it again my shrine.
It is then that I regain my serenity
And feel the One and His joyful unity!
I do pray that I honestly and deliberately…
deserve that ultimate Tranquility.
