The Hell - Poem by Tushar Ray

There is no such place called the eternal hell
Though there is the hellish state of the mind
When man suffers from making repeated sins
Freeing for time being the fiery forces within

Hellish state of mind is a brief state of gloom
Swamped by anger, despair, jealousy and like
Where distressed mood plague tormented mind
Crafted by bad karma sustaining equal suffering

Our past karma creates hell that we later survive
Coming from emotion, poor speech and thought
As differing emotions creating all inner demons
Unleash critical forces remaining hidden within

Hell is a provisional phase in any person’s life
That surely clears out after refining of the mind
Learning how to manage own thought and act
Mindful of the totality and proper use of mind

Minds then realize Spirit-self as the supreme Lord
Being the omnipresent one, living in every soul
Only then we begin to share and care for others
And steadfastly proceed toward our universal goal

We realize at last peace residing in every heart
Coming alive by genuine feeling for others around
Fully realizing mistakes that we made in the past
Steering away from more erring by caring for others

Thus we learn how to pass the hellish settings at last
Seeing the Self as ultimate reality in our very universe

    Really we should keep God in our heart so that we can free from all vices and can inculcate purity and virtues because where there is light there never be darkness. Many thanks for your poem presented nicely and aptly. (Report) Reply
