Finding Me - Poem by Kavya Leo Vakkayil

I don't wish the apple to fall
On my head, like on Newtons head.

I don't wish to run ahead,
Shouting Eureka for the rest of my life.

But I wish to find within my soul
The kindness, goodness and the brightest light
Before I lose it, in this changing world
As in the Hoodoo Sea with no remains.

Topic(s) of this poem: self discovery

    one can have Faith in which to find 'peace', but without scientific knowledge, no Knowledge at all for Mankind.. (Report) Reply

    I do agree that scientific knowledge is important.But I meant to emphasize the importance of finding
    peace. And I also wanted to suggest that you should not merely be waiting for technological and scientific advancements and running behind only those.Instead should try to find the inner peace which can be lost if not found.
