    Inspiration - Poem

    The topic of inspiration kept in coming up in my recent interactions. It prompted me to write a very short poem in the matter. I felt like sharing.


    It doesn't take much to spark the notes of the soul,
    It doesn't take much to be inspired when you realise you are whole,
    I don't need to be in a faraway land with stars as far as the eye can see,
    I don't need to be in mansion, or paradise, or staring at idyllic scenery under a tree

    I could very well be in the midst of chaos and trouble
    I could very well be with those who know nothing but sleepless nights on the rubble
    I could very well be in a slum admist the mud and the gravel
    I could very well be with myself on my lonesome, what is the need to travel

    My very essence is inspiration, I saw it in myself, and now I see it in you
    I saw it in myself, and now I see it spanning across all existence, it's true
    It was hard to be inspired, with a mind full of doubt,
    It was hard to be inspired, when I tried to find a drop of truth in a deceit-filled drought

    Now inspiration waits for me around every corner, I don't have to go and look
    Conscious effort is no longer required, I even fell in love with the crook
    ''It's easier said then done''; I heard them whisper in my ear
    I whispered back ''thats true''; but when I accept my own bliss everything becomes so clear

    The gods and the goddesses bestowed it in every specimen with love
    It was knitted into all life-forms with the supremes very own benovelonce; symbolic and pure like a dove

    So when I'm searching for inspiration
    A trip, art, or a new viewpoint might help, thats true
    but if you're really looking for inspiration
    you don't need to look any further than you.

    Hari Om!


    Truly didn't want to waste the space to reply as your poem deserves to stand alone. It's from a place deep within and really shows us a great part of who you are. Thank-you for sharing such an intimate part of yourself.

    Keep allowing the words to flow because it has been my experience that the soul will reveal a great part of what is within. You've just proven this and it would be nice to see more.
