When I run after what I think I want…………

تنها☆اینجام☆تنها على تويتر: ".من عاشقی از کمال تو آموزم بیت و غزل از جمال  تو آموزم در پردهٔ دل خیال تو رقص کند من رقص خوش از خیال تو آموزم… "

When I run after what I think I want

My days are like a hot furnace

Of acute stress and anxiety

For days I am at my wits end

Have no power to think sensibly

But start to decay in my own edginess

If I sit in my own place of patience

Being one with myself in silence

Letting each breath cleanse my inner chaos

And knowing that life still colours

My gorgeous world with her vivacity

What I need flows beautifully in me

And without an inch of pain

I feel that spaciousness inside

From this I can well understand

That what I want also wants me

Is looking for me and attracting me

To come and be with Him

There is a great secret here

For anyone who can grasp it

Simply sway with the movement

There is magic in the unknown

  1. Beautiful and fabulous poem Kamal. HAPPINESS is So near.. But sadly we spend a lot of time searching for it in the Outside world. HAPPINESS lies within in feeling sufficient. Keep giving Kamal dear friend 💞💮🌼☘️🌳💚😊

  3. Dear Kamal, wow, I really really enjoyed reading this gorgeous poem of yours. I love how you
    write about trusting that “what you seek is seeing you”, or, as you put it so beautifully, “From this I can well understand, That what I want also wants me, Is looking for me and attracting me”. Gorgeous work! Hugs and blessings 🙂

    1. Thank you so much dear for these awesome words of this lovely and wonderful poem of mine. We have to trust in ourselves and we are the seekers who are seeking. Yes completely true what I want also wants me is looking for me at all times and attracting me. This is nothing but our own true Self that is seeking us. One day we have to go with the flow. Love and light to you too.

    1. Such beautiful words said Deeksha. Magic of the unknown has a mysterious excitement. In Mumbai we had such torrential rains it has destroyed so many buildings, trees, roads, the sea too came and mixed with the rains and madness. Where I too stay we had water logging till our waist and no electricity from yesterday. Half an hour back we got lights. Hope all good in Bangalore.♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

      1. Oho….today I was seeing videos of mumbai rains.It is horrible with corona in the air. Keep your immunity strong Kamal.That is the only thing which is our best rescue.
        Bangalore is completely damp these days. Not raining much but all cloudy, wet and cold with drizzling. Cases are increasing and coming nearer day by day.

      2. Yes Deeksha thank you and yes Corona and the rains that were like a cyclone and torrents. Here in Mumbai I stay very near South Mumbai and my place was totally flooded till the waist and then to be cautious the BEST switched off lights too yesterday from 4.00 p.m. and gave us lights today at 1.00 p.m.. Very horrible and bad right now with so much destruction too.

      1. All going on Tanvir and at times this Virus has taken so many people by storm we have to keep positive and keep on engaging ourselves in some kind of activity. My grandson will be 2 years in two months time and he is a pleasure to have around when my daughter gets him though he is not talking yet and I too retired from HPCL last year. So now busy doing housework at home with no one to help but do everything on your own. Keep myself busy at least for sometime on WordPress. Nice to be reading posts that are so inspiring and then post say in five days. Much love and light to you dear. Love and hugs.
