Search for Truth

Photo by Navneet Shanu on

I travelled to places far,
And saw as far as went my sight.
Despite this wait of many hours,
I found no end to this plight.

I heard the speech of many a man,
Which gave peace to all but me,
And say this for sure I can,
I still didn’t find any glee.

I tasted many a herb,
many glories to which were assigned,
But none my thirst could curb.
Oh, still the answer I did not find.

I smelt many a scent,
Of lilies and of rose.
Still didn’t know what it meant,
Still didn’t lose my woes.

I touched many a jewel,
Took dips in lake and spring.
Only further did this my craving fuel,
I had learnt not a thing!

At last I came home,
And turned my senses within.
Then the truth shone,
Then did the journey really begin.

I heard the holy sound,
Yet not from my ears.
Then, the truth I found,
which I had forsaken for years.

Nothing did I find in the vast world,
But I found it inside,
Rose the serpent which was whirled,
Then my desire truly died.
