The Inner Voice - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni

Now, there is this one unwavering voice, soft and subtle,
Holding out many promises,
Coaxing me to rise and take the path
That leads to the yonder beyond,
Beyond all my fears and hesitations;

I ask –
Is this not the same voice which had not very long ago promised to me
Not only valuable and splendorous gains of everlasting light
But also unending peace and eternal delight?
Is this not the same cajoling voice which when first heard
Had directed me to step out and gaze at the blue-hued sky overhead
And speculate about its depth and expanse?
Is this not the same wonderfully pleasing voice which amidst the din raised by works and deeds
Is now seldom heard and talked about,
But, which I alone can hear and do not dispute?

Such like questions I have often happened to ask
Listening to that one caring voice rising from within
Comforting me again and again
When, tormented by my many fears and hesitations,
I desperately seek a place to hide all of my tears and pain
In vain.
