Freed My Soul - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

Elevate my soul upwards, to the heavenly light
So I can breathe in it, bathe in it.
For I am so exhausted of being hidden
Inside this earthly dreadful darkness,
Strangling me like a satanic python
Whispering death in my ears.

It’s not that I want to be immortal
Only I want to die in the light of your love
As I had taken birth, years ago,
Knowing nothing but you,
Carrying a light of innocence.

Now, I beg your forgiveness,
For I have lost it in the forest of black leaves,
For I have drenched my soul
In the murky water of worldly contentment.
And I am ready to believe,
This body is too rotten to reach for you.
And I am ready to leave,
Illusion of decadence
That has always been an obstacle to touch you.

So save me my lord,
Freed my soul,
And elevate it upwards, to the heavenly light.
