SHOW ME THE LIGHT...








Sands of time etched by Thy feet,
Trace a path, visible in dark.
Shiny, shimmery grains of faith;
Visions of truth guide me, off late.
                 
Shadowed by enormous falcons of lies,
Blown by winds of gloomy times,
Washed by waves of sorrow and despair,
The path of hope is lost again.

I pray to Thee to come to my rescue;
Bless the sands one more time,
Show me light and art of life,
Fill my chalice with belief in Thy.

-Vaisakhi Mishra



ps-was a bit upset past couple of days due to unfortunate events in India....so penned this down... .

  4. Every endless night has a dawning day,
    every darkest sky, has a shining ray

    Perhaps, it isn't wise of human to loose hope so easily, even though the times are getting hard. Just pray that such tragedies never ever happen again.
