Would you notice?

Poem written by Suraj Shah.

Time to wake up from this slumber,
Time to put my mundane desires to the side…

If I were to go today, would you notice me missing?
If I were to stay today, would you notice me here?
Doing much to keep me happy,
Running far away from fear.

Working hard for temporary pleasures,
Forgetting to focus on the core,
Ignoring the needs of others,
Is it only me that I adore?

Time to wake up from this slumber,
Time to put my mundane desires to the side,
Got to be brave and fight my inner enemies,
Got to no longer choose to hide.

If I were to go today, would you notice me missing?
If I were to stay today, would you notice me here?
Turn my attention now towards my true self,
Turn my attention towards what’s near.

If I were to go today, would you notice me missing?

    1. Thank you Cathy. We tend to be so addicted to our mundane worldly desires, that we forget about who we are at our core. The road to recovery from temporary pleasures leads to a fulfilling purposeful life.
