Within our hearts there is a place hidden
Protected well from ourselves even
That’s the core pillar of who we really are
Sooner we find it, we shall know us better

Within ourselves the moment we are born
All is clear, pure and all is clean
Surroundings fill us with garbage and dirt
Upto us to again make it clean and bright

Within us have strength to forgive and forget
Finding our true self, we shall be brave
No need for any preachers and healers
Find ourselves and we can be leaders

Within our hearts we can find love again
Compassion for others, courage to befriend
Extend helping hands to the downtrodden
Welcome others as sisters and brethren

Within us we have the resolve for freedom
We have the aptitude and we have the wisdom
Deep inside all of us burns the same fire
Peace and prosperity for all is our desire

Within our core is truth and light
External world blinded our sight
Close the eyes and search deep inside
Let our true self be shining bright



Week 10 of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with “W”

Write Anything Wednesday 4-6-2016

Author: pranabaxom

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. this is absolutely beautiful and full of light. Thank you for sharing/writing this. it hands out hope to all people. unfortunately this world is a messy place, and it is true that we must rely on ourselves for the changes we seek. it can be so hard sometimes (living), and that is why others choose to help one another. I hope that you have a wonderful day 🙂

    1. Thank you for your kind words.
      Yesterday did not start well. I was spiralling down into a funk. Literally had to drag myself out of it. Writing helped. When I write, in my mind, I see my readers and I see them happy. That brightens up my day.

      1. I’m glad that you found a way to feel better. Writing is definitely a good way to get out the frustration.. It’s nice to have such a gift– the gift of expression.
