Poetry: To serve the Divine?

26th Jul 2013

To serve the Divine?

Have I felt the truth of timelessness

In compassion and selflessness,

Passion and sacrifice

In seeing beauty within the ordinary

Finding purpose in adversity

In weeping to Him through dark nights

Overwhelmed by love and humility?


Have I realised that mortality and transience

Can only be surpassed by true existence

When I actualise my potential, my immensity

And my soul breathes

Beauty, humanity, peace
