A Conversation With 'I'-Part(Ii) - Poem by Pratyush Mishra

I believe
I searched too hard for enlightenment
Walking farther from this desolate world
Perhaps I was searching for gold
Yes- the gold of enlightenment
Craving for the soft touch of wisdom
Sitting in a dark forest devoid
Of physical light

I searched for the treasure
Of enlightenment
In the deepest grottoes of Earth
In calmest pools of water
In solitude of non-inhabitance

Alas! They were all wrong places
I forgot to search my own Heart
Beating now and then, calmly
In the midst of this rabid world
Yea! There resided Enlightenment’s gold!
