When there is chitter chatter all around,
I pray, there be no sound.
I want to hear my heart beat,
And every thought in my head.
I want to be absolutely still and calm,
Just like stagnant water.
But the cacophony shakes me,
Just like a stone thrown in, causing a ripple.
I want to lay on the grass,
And watch the stars tonight.
I want to listen to each breath,
As i inhale and exhale,
And feel every cell in my body.
I want to be free like a bird,
And soar high above the clouds of life.
I want to be a giver,
Of happiness, peace, joy and all good things.
But for that i must pay – utmost attention,
And listen closely to-
The Silence in my Soul.
