Fool I was to chase what’s outside,
Too timid to understand my gaze is not that wide.
All that I have within shall hide
unless something is there for me to confide.
No one but I was there to keep me confined;
I could not even decipher what I should try to find.
The void inside was there to remind
That there’s allot to be defined.
Hard it was to understand even if something inside tried to guide,
I was so choked with the outer fabricated lies to glide
More towards what propelled me to stay more tied
Unless I realised that inner strength has everything to provide.
The sequestered joy was seen when I paid significance to what is in my mind.
Now I know I am embodied with light to every dark intertwined;
However, Hard it was to find
That seeking answers inside is way more kind.
I am not perplexed anymore as I know the norm to abide
That introspection is all that I had to decide.
And now I am no longer deprived
Of any solution with the realisation that I have the world inside.
