Let Me Be Me [a Search For Solitude] - Poem by Om Chawla
It's mid of night
Dark and still all around
Something hurts within
I know not why does it hound;
No forebodings of any gloom
No fear of impending doom
Yet still my heart is distressed
Yet still my mind is ill at ease.
Out in the open, dark and windless
The vast expanse so still and soundless
Under the inverted sea of darkness
Covered with a spread of shinning beads
I search for elusive solitude.
Yes there are no disturbing sounds
Though within the depths of deep dark sky
May be buried the sounds
Of stars exploding
Of meteors crashing
And many an earth like civilizations:
These sounds, as may be
can't infringe surrounding tranquility
Then why the rumblings within my mind
Impede the silent stillness
And deny me solitude.
Quiet my mind, quieten down,
Usher within me a silent dawn.
The world will be
The world that is
Banish these distressing thoughts.
Let me bathe in the sea of solitude,
Let me bathe in the peace that be,
Let me listen to the saner voice
Let me with myself be.
Let me be me.
