Happiness is a state of mind… The purer the mind, the happier it is….
The less distracted, disruptive and crowded it is, the happier it is…
The more silent, still and wholesome it is, the happier it is…
I like being alone sometimes where I can hear my thoughts
Someplace where I can take a deep sigh, let it out and feel it at the same time.
Somewhere there’s only silence, inside and out.
And think, contemplate and just be…
Why do some people love constant noise in their lives?
Maybe I’ll understand one day…
Silence – deep, profound, pure!
How I yearn for it?
The silence in me talks constantly….
The silence in me is blessed indeed…
All it asks is that I listen to it…
A soft, sibilant voice insists that I heed…
Listen and it will answer my call,
Listen and my problems, it will resolve,
Listen and it will lighten the burden.
Listen and the false path, in mist, will dissolve.
Just listen and it will bring gladness to my heart.
Listen and it will sooth all yearnings,
Listen and it will polish my rough edges,
Listen and it will quench my eternal thirsting…
Heed the music in your soul,
Heed the voice in your most primitive part,
It’s never late to do away with discordant notes
It’s never late to make a fresh start!
Listen deeply and discover you will,
The notes and sounds of your own voice.
The light that burns closest to the hearth,
Was always you – only in disguise.
Listen to it and strengthen your voice,
Search for the true God in your disguise,
Live the voice you were meant to have,
Make it your will, make it your prize!
I fought with you yesterday,
And I do feel sad for it…
But I was all confused yesterday
I couldn’t articulate myself then
Hence the silence since last night
Silence helps me to understand
My emotions (I’m no expert at them)
You know how they handicap me
And that’s the reason I make
Such few true friends I have
My friends are my safety net
My sanity against the crazy shit!
I can’t comprehend lies
Either by prevarication, omission or an outright one
Since I find truth so easy,
Especially among those who are cozy
And comfortable with each other…
There is no logic in lies
When we can swap truths easily
Since we are so close
And we trust each other so!
I worry about you dear friend
When you are sad
I want to know your pain
To put a smile back on your face!
But I am hurt when you don’t share
Rather you just blow away my care
You make up some excuses to
Fob me off, stop my questions too…
I don’t mind if you just tell me
“It’s something that I can’t tell”
I will respect your privacy
Let you deal with it as well…
What I can’t understand is the need you have
To lie or prevaricate to me
I’ve never done this to you
And I can’t comprehend your reason for it…
This morning I woke up
And realized my problem
So thought here to write it…
Couldn’t do the same yesternight
Hence my silence since…
I hope you understand my concerns
I hope you come up with a solution
Can’t talk to you outright about it
So here is my peace offering…
