Feel Light At Heart - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I have no regret for ever being slammed
I shall not mind even if path is blocked or jammed
I have received its intimation long before
I low lie before all and act humble therefore

It is causing me sleepless nights
It may certainly be a warning for me to act right
I tried to forget the signal but failed
I felt human soul being jailed

Not in four walls of dungeon
Not put in cage like pigeon
But certainly a prisoner of conscience
I have felt it number of times and not at once

I entered sacred place to worship
But with no real intent and to act as cheap
It was sheer fear and no faith
I was now afraid of real death

The door slammed from behind
As if it was also not kind
I was taken here too as unwanted
Even though at heart I seriously chanted

Now words were really coming true
I was gradually returning to fold too
Something in me had really urged
I need last chance to be purged

I want to go through peace ordeal
It has brought change for real
I shall fold my hand and bow head
Ask for reprieve and honest path to lead

I am sure it will be granted
As no one comes out empty handed
God is great and may grant every chance
To reform and come to the fold at once

I feel light at heart
Prayers are in fact real form of an art
Even hard core criminal may prefer to bow his head
Before his time has run out and declared dead

    We all come to poetries tabernacle to pray for ourselves and for others. The use of words to uplift, reveal and subsequently inform the self so as to be happy and at rest, as you say; light at heart. There are more ways to reach enlightened self than the orthodoxies og religion psychology, or philosophical beliefs. Nice and thoughtful write.
