Rest with me, we’ll pretend that we’re free, we’ll laugh at the troubles that were yesterday dreams. Won’t you rest with me?

Breaking away from the shame of a name, dignity is the price we pay to play this game; the world is not our friend, but we caress it till the end.

Steadily we do climb to the top of the tower built by our pride, giving up our peace of mind for the passion of a moments illusive high. Can’t grasp it, for it was never even meant to be – we’re painting our forevers with illusions.

Got an angel and a devil fighting for possession, but the truth is I’m beyond what needs repressing; more the likes and dislikes, more than laughs and fist fights.

They say great minds they think alike, but genius is the power to rewrite the times; let us not cave to the world we are enslaved.

The world will go on telling what it feels is right and wrong, but we all know the difference between love and harm – beyond happiness and fear, beyond illusions we hold dear.

Take each step as if it were our last, and truly the end is gonna be here fast – there will be no warning when our time has come.

So, won’t you rest with me, we’ll pretend that we’re free, we’ll laugh at the troubles that were yesterday dreams. Won’t you rest with me?

  1. Profound thoughts here. If only we could laugh in the face of our troubles….. And, taking all steps as if they are our last is a worthy goal, I think. We never do know what is around the corner. Very nice to see you here again!

  2. Sreejit, it is lovely to see your name posted at Mr Linky…………I so love the life wisdom in this poem and especially love “The world will go on telling what it feels is right and wrong, but we all know the difference between love and harm.” So true.

  3. Om Namah Shivaya Sreejit,

    I am enjoying the posts on The Seeker’s Dungeon. Thanks for doing this. After returning from seeing Amma in Everett I was reminded of an experience I had about three years ago. The experience was much like what I understand a waking dream to be, and today the memory returned while is was sitting in silence. At the time I felt it was Amma’s way of reminding me that she is, indeed, everywhere and, by giving me an experience I could understand with my little mind, I could get a small glimpse of her omniscience.

    So I wrote the following to describe what I “saw”. I know it isn’t long enough for your to publish and I don’t expect you to, however, it seemed important for me to share it with you anyway. I guess if only one other person reads it (you) it is enough.

    May Amma’s grace flow unceasingly to you on your journey and in all your endeavors. At Her feet, Aparna

  4. There is so much meaning in every part of this post. In the moment the lines that drew me most were: “The world will go on telling what it feels is right and wrong, but we all know the difference between love and harm – beyond happiness and fear, beyond illusions we hold dear.” But I had a hard time choosing and know in another moment I’d probably pick a different one. Well done!
