I’m in search of a place called home, Since I came here. The place where I come from The place where I belong. I asked everyone I saw. Everywhere I go, Is it you, is it you? There’s never an answer.
I’m in search of a place called home, Since I came here. A place far away, A place I don’t even know exists. I look up to the stars and ask Why did you send me here If this isn’t my home? There’s only silence I heard.
I’m a lotus. You will have to peel A Hundred layers and A Thousand petals to Know the real fragrance.
I’m a lotus. You will have to let me Bloom myself, in My own pace to See the beauty of me.
I’m a lotus. You’ll never see me Fall, because My roots are deep Down in the earth.
I’m a lotus. You will never see me Fail, because I flourished from the Mud and turbulent waters.
I’m a lotus. I will never let you give up On your dreams and hopes, Because I will make you Realize, the gem of wisdom You have been seeking Is already within you.
(I just wrote this poem a few days ago, and I know it’s a mess, to be honest. But this is so closer to my heart because I feel like this is my life and my purpose. As I mentioned in the poem, I am always felt related to thelotus. I know many of you can relate to it too. I am so sorry for the grammatical mistakes)
I’m light. I bared my soul to the world, Let my light. Thinking that people will Love me for who I am. Wanted to be the one Who spread the love, Make all around smile. A shoulder to cry on. Little bit I knew that, They were blinded by My light.
They penetrated a dagger through My glowing soul, My arms, my heart. I’m shattered like a Broken glass, Like a bird’s nest In a thunderstorm. Little bit they knew that I’m light.
They broke my soul, Broke my heart. Cut mark all over me Expecting me to bleed, Little bit they knew that I’m light.
Light leaking through All my cuts, Keeps my soul shining. More light bleeding, Through my veins. Little bit they knew that I’m light.
They kept trying And trying to, Cut me more, tear me down. I kept shedding light. I said’em my light, is not something I have. It’s what I’m. I’m light.
(This is my first post on this blog. It’s a new day and a new journey for me. I seek your love and support all along. )
