The Fire within

Hi all,

This is a new poem that I have written that is inspired by the power of the Fire within each of us to achieve new milestones at each instance, on the road of life. Read on....

  • While moments in our life fly across the sands of time,

And one senses an immense longing for loved ones’ melodious rhymes,

There is that reason that one feels inspired to go on,

The fire within that steers one towards a state of boundless energy, full-on.

  • The light from this energy helps one see new horizons of hope,

While one is still hiking the way up across the steep slope.

There are times when one is de-motivated and possesses a sense of loss,

As one faces turbulent winds that sway him, rock and toss.

  • The undaunted spirit within, inspired by the brilliance of the light,

Refuses to give way for defeat and pursues with all its might,

The belief in its wildest and most passionate dreams,

That re-kindles the fire within, to transcend the self to reality from a state of dream.

  • It is then that the old lady of faith takes her seat firmly,

In the heart of the willful dreamer, steadily,

As she steers the heart to move towards radiance and abundance,

That fills one’s life with beauty, after a journey of great strife in existence.

  • So hold on, young minds, to your dreams and ignite

The fire within so that tomorrow after a decade you may recite,

To future generations - the painful yet insightful journey to your success –

Which is the story of keeping the fire within, burning in the required excess.
