The soul is quiet today and the heart is heavy
A bit sad ,a bit tired or perhaps both.
My heart’s eye blinks a silent tear,
Its heaviness weighs me down.
Restlessness has engulfed
my heart from every corner.
Locked inside the cage of flesh and bones
my soul flutters to break free.
While my body devours
soft morsels of worldly food.
My soul famished and my heart cringed.
Lost and numb , with a body
weighing so heavy I stood to pray .
I put my head on the ground
in sujood and in submission.
Few moments of quietness and
Restlessness was disarming
chains were removed.
My heart felt at peace
and my soul free again.
( Another day when you feel low and only praying/meditation helps( at least for my case) . I strongly believe that our soul needs to be fed , nourished and taken care of similarly like our bodies. Good deeds, good thoughts ,remembrance of God ,being grateful and prayers are its food .
