The Inner Self


Each one of us
Has a higher self
A middle and lower self
As well as an inner self

The higher self we aspire to be
The lower self is how far we fall
The middle self is a mixed ball
The inner self is really small

The inner self is a place
Where Ego does not gel
A place where there is the you real
And time is at a stand still

Encased under coverings of Ego
Is said to be the soul
The soul is not new but very old
Having passed stages and evolved

The inner place is peaceful
People's talks here have no value
It is you your belief and your values
That marks your progress spiritual

The place deep inside you
Somewhere near your heart
The peacefulness is so great
Not found in any world's part

We do not realize
It is what Saints look for
Throughout life what we all search for
Ultimate destination we are destined for

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
