The Love grows within

The Love grows within

People hold

The woes at arms’ length

They confess

Wrongdoings

The priest a pail of water

Washing away sin

 

Through the din

Of voices spilling

The chilling

Careless minds

Owning up a lost concept

Remorse ne’er teeth grinds

 

The waters

Wash away matter

The unclaimed

Cast treasures

Of inner content measures

Declining substance

 

Stretched so thin

The souls a shadow

Of lost hope

Blind justice

The mouth but tool to practise

False words of regret

 

The victims

The ghosts of the self

The gaze bleak

As they speak

Of accumulated hurt

Until the night falls

 

Day’s respite

Within the sorrows

Invented

Outer world

Mirrors of inner torment

As dark faces light

 

Mind creates

From pool of battles

The ripple

Unending

The battlefield heart-rending

We fight but ourselves

 

Learn balance

The heart speaks clearly

Yet the mind

Clings dearly

Known fields appeasing kingdoms

Though they spell bloodshed

 

It trickles

Drop after drop flows

Till the end

When hearts mend

The cup a humble chalice

The flow endless stream

 

The seeker

Walks in white penance

Within dream

Through unseen

The journey a star filled trek

Through the wilderness

 

Fading steps

In realms of the void

Of reasons

Self devoid

Only knowing acceptance

The why matters not

 

When hearts rule

The kingdoms flourish

Each bastion

A limb cast

Inner nurturing outer

The Love grows within

  1. The battles within ourselves, a lifelong quest for some. I loved this poem Geetha, in fact, it has inspired a short story, still in the mind just now. Thank you for your wonderful words and way of seeing things.
