My World

As a poet, Maya, has the capacity to create a world that’s her own – away from the divisions and dissensions, the mundane existence. Here’s an evocative verse, in Different Truths.

It’s a world of reasons, 
arguments, 
naked truths, 
bitterness, 
monotony, 
satiety, 
loves, 
hates, 
bitterness, 
despair… 

It’s world out there… 
mundane to the core. 

You can’t find me there. 

Mine is the world, 
where distance matters not, 
where matters not the label, 
where I can send healings from miles apart, to those ailing, 
and… 
be blessed from distance too…

Mine is the world
where even death separates not… 

I can feel those, 
who, no more, earthly vehicles are, 
talk to them in my mind… 

Mine is the world
where there are no serpents of fake self-esteem, pride, prejudice, and envy… 
It’s a world at peace! 

Here… 
Here you can find me.
