In Search Of Freedom - Poem by Sathya Narayana

In search of freedom; how strange,
waves are running away from oceans
and rays are running away from light...
I wonder,
can they ever sever from their founts?

Fastened are lives, likewise
one and all in this universe
to the unraveled hidden source.

Yet humans run in nescience
towards illusory independence.

Stop your sprint
dear straying mortals...
start searching your inner alcoves.

Not really fathoms deep to grope...
well nigh the ultimate free rein
in the wellspring; The Mighty Divine!

Topic(s) of this poem: deep, waves

    independence is only a concept
    interdependence is practiced by real men...

    The answers (and freedom) are within. What is that song -'Looking for love in all the wrong places.....' It's time to wake up and listen to that voice within that guides all mankind if he will only take the time to listen. Love is within all of us and opens the door to freedom if we choose. It's up to us to make that choice. Another powerful piece, Sathya.
