Enlightenment


The country music is playing
cradles the chaos
in my sleep
An hour of solitude
spent wondering
who I am
in this old, dying jeep.

My fairy godmother's words
troubles me way down deep
But at least I found a way
to be discreet
Such a technique
saved me from my last trip.

Life is not meaningless
so as to stress yourself
God is everywhere to bless
those who are anxious and stressed.
So relax a bit and take a rest.

Pursue peace of mind first
In these unhealed wounds
I am my own nurse
Was it God-given ability?
Alas!
I just found out lately
Despite the anxiety
It was overwhelmingly easy
so smooth,
just to be me.

-This poem was inspired by the author's turning points in every chapter of her life. Enlightenment- she's so fond of wisdom that she always brings a small notebook and pen everytime she's out. Who knows where she can hear the whisper of wisdom? The author believes wisdom can be found anywhere ‘despite the anxiety.'

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
