Pamuditha Zen Anjana

(15-08-1988 / Colombo, Sri Lanka)

Rebirth


I was alone,
rusting in heaven...
blinded by illusions of love.
bound with chains of hope.

I was asleep,
dreaming aloud...
encouraging myself to breathe.
reaching for the control within.

I was recollecting,
running in circles...
trying to prove myself to the world.
working to gain the ultimate trust.

I was defining,
turning towards undefined light...
confused by how confused I was.
bamboozled by the complicated signs.

Now I'm inside the shell,
emptying my feelings...
starting to decapitate my sight.
imagining the realms of life.

    to know the life itself amounts rebirth
    need not be necessary to come after death
    what has been remained totally unknown
    in rebirth it will be available and known (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
