Awakening

Beat my heart,
Tribal drum,
Coax the feeling,
Of spiritual dilation,

Tears come,
For I know,
Deep inside,
I haven’t been everything you wanted me to be.

You are an impulse,
Sensation, repatriation,
Sing loudly to wake me,
I ache to feel alive again,
Just to be right here.

Delve deeper,
Ease yourself into it,
Into the severe melancholy,
Into the relinquishing,
Years of grief strike you like swords in battle,
And the storm calls for remuneration.

This is the healing,
It pains all mortals,
It molds them firmly,
And breaks them again,

Out of one wish we are created
And back into nothing we go.

AT times we so called human keeps wondering for happiness it s all there gazing at us right in the eyes..its all lyes deep withing us... The faith its just a hand reach but we allure our selves to another direction

Truely we need that awakening but at times the alarm keeps ringing we are too deaf to hear ...
