A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek)

 

I was searching, searching, searching

Searching for a place to stay

Searching for some food to eat

Searching for some clothes to wear

Till I found it

 

The place was exactly where I was sitting

That was all that was needed to stay

The food was right there in my stomach

That was all that was required to live

The clothes were right there, which I was wearing

It was all that was needed for my protection

 

Still I was searching, searching, searching?

Searching for someone to be with

Searching for some lover

Searching for some company

Searching for God himself!

Till I found it

 

I was able to be with myself

The person I was searching for

The lover was also ‘myself’

The company too was ‘myself’

 

I found it! I ‘found it’

I found God in myself.
