You Told Me


the most inner part of my body
that is my soul
is the parts of Yours
more luminous than
thousands of sun
covered by the clouds of appetite, fear, anger, greed, arrogance, delusion and all evil elements
have one day to be dispersed
entire elements have to be destroyed, by the end of great devastation till then,
you have to rotate
within your different countenance

May I ask you the existence of life
devoid of all those evil elements

Your reply was very simple
life has nothing to do
with all those evil elements
life is yours, bestowed to lead a peaceful and delighted life
no need to possess those evil elements,
your soul is thorough and complete essence
listen your soul in each of your action
certainly, paradise is ascertained

    Loved those words I can feel to be true as I guess our souls are connected to everything, could also mean we are part of each other. Maybe we've just lost the memory of it. Thank you for your beautiful and wise poem! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
