Devoir - Poem by Vidushi Khera
I was blind to my calling in life,
I didn't wanna take on what GOD had in mind.
I thought that I wanted a simple life,
But, the Lord had a different aim for me to realize,
And he’s asked for my heart, my mind, my soul
The things I thought were mine, what made me whole.
But, He tells me I am a part of Him, and my goal
Is to fulfill my destiny, to play out my role
Come to think of it, until now I thought
“Why are my dreams shattered? My hopes shot?
And why every memory, in time, seems to rot? ”
I realize I was a fool to have sought
Things that took me far away from Him
I thought I was here to fulfill my whims
And fancies, but He gave me my skin
To show the world the more divine things
And he guides me breaking my forced dreams
That I keep building to run away, it seems.
Coz he has a job laid down for me
And from deep down inside His voice screams.
Screams so hard because I refuse to hear,
But my Lord, trust me now, I will bear
The path you have for me, I’ll start right here.
So bless me lord and force away my fear.
