Conviction

Spread the love

So often heart’s restless as southern wind,
won’t you offer solace, soothe with whisper 
World’s a scene of blood, wine and bedlam
come savor oh thoughts that remind of love. 
Though night’s emblem of darkness of soul, 
there are times when my mind rejects dolor; 
figure everything moral leads one to You.

    It’s easy to dwell on the miseries, isn’t it? But there are times and moods when we seek the more pleasant and reassuring. I’m glad you wrote this, Sanaa. Good for the ‘heart’.

  9. soothing is the night for all to see, feel its ‘doler’ sleep
    for we all need this balance in our keep
    to laugh, to cry to walk, to fall
    we need it all
