Ode to the self

At the crossroads of life, you oft become sceptical, reflective
Stutter to a standstill – immobilised, indecisive, introspective
Pondering whether to march on the trodden path, tested and secure
Or to take the road less travelled, enticing in its allure

www.sahaye.comAs you dither over the inscrutable dilemma
Thrust into the throes of a terrible trauma
Even the most cogent, consummate analysis
Will come to a naught-precipitate paralysis

Afloat in the fathomless ocean,engulfed by a torrent profuse
Caught in its cross-currents,you conjure up shores abstruse
But the spider of life weaves a vexatious web
The high tide of hope recedes,reaches its lowest ebb

Much as you fret and fume, agonise, agitate
Sweep it under the carpet, wish it will mitigate
The conundrum gnaws at you, debilitates, devitalizes
You sink into an abyss, no escape materializes

Alas! where is that elusive spark?
Whence will it come and make its mark
With senses benumbed, the mind clueless
‘Is it beyond me?’ you plead, powerless

Gather your wits, don’t be torn asunder
Submit to your inner being, in abject surrender
Within the wellsprings of your consciousness lies the solution
You need only to look inward,motionless, sans digression
For there you will discover a flame -shimmering,sparkling,shining

Its the SELF, which always beckoned, whilst you were whining
Akin to a beacon-light, it annihilates all illusion
Salvages your ship from the stormy sea of delusion

When the SELF speaks,keep your ears open, be alert
The remedies it proffers are simple, the message curt
Pay heed to its averments, imbibe the profundity
Partake of its omniscience, revel in the majesty

Connect to your SELF and you will with an effulgence glow
At your beck and call shall the waves of wisdom flow
Tis futile to look askance, dwell on the outside
When the key to life’s enigmas lies within – inside

Ode to the Self!
