The day when the end will come
I'll depart this earth at once,
Leaving behind all earthly things -
I'll cross seven rivers and seven seas,
Thereafter, crossing the seven skies -
I'll move further to an eternal height.

Far and far away from this material world-
I'll be in a silent and solitary place,
A place of wisdom with no cheer or no pain -
Free from any material gain.
Being alone in that holy place-
Once I'll be awaken again
I'll be able to know then
And reveal the soul of mine.

Earlier, several times in so many ways -
I tried to see me and know myself.
But till today until now -
All my efforts were in vain.

But there on that very day,
Surely I'll know myself
What I'm thriving so long so far -
Will be known to me right on that day.
No more I'll remain in the dark -
By knowing my radiant inner being.
I'll be awaken and be content -
In revealing the graceful soul of mine.

    A very nice read relating to the mysteries of life and what
    we hope to be in the hereafter. Live life to the fullest and
    be a blessing to others. The Creator knows all about us
    and will give to us according to our works. Walk in the Light! (Report) Reply

    While alive, however hard we try to discover ourselves, the efforts will prove futile. But after death, our soul and the related mysteries, we hope, will be completely unravelled before us. Let us hopefully wait for that time of bliss! A great write! ! (Report) Reply
