An inward looking poem by Sarala, where she talks of loneliness and meeting the her creator, in Different Truths.
Alone I walked throughout my life
With no one to be by my lonely side!
I sobbed and wept years together
But wanted to reach my destination
Where flowers bloom!
I got hurt many a time
Often I wiped away my tears
With a heavy heart looking to the sky!
I have lost my rhythm years back
When I lost my near and dear ones!
But I kept on walking
Jumping the hurdles many
God put on my way!
When I got tired I call out to Him
In my pitiable voice for mercy
He looks at me
And holds me tight
I wander about in my paddy field
Talking to the golden grains
With my aching heart!
I talk to my pets when I am lonely
and breaking, and they comfort me
With their tricks many!
I heard a voice the other day
Echoing from far
Calling my name!
Astonished I was
To see my creator with his
reassuring smile looking deep into
My lonely eyes!
My loneliness left me forever
And now am a new creation
to the surprise of many !
