The Awakening

a poem by Sumeet Mahanti

As I rest myself on the sands (of time) by the sea
Hands folded and mind entrenched in deep trance;
Going deeper into my inner being, I feel
A latent power rise from deep within – in a dance

As I put my soul at peace
Feeling myself in divine communion;
The Divine connect giving me strength
To behold life afresh as a soul re-born

As I go deeper into the Transcedental kingdom
Feeling the awakening of the soul;
I open the eyes of my mind wide
To envision life’s highest goal

As I experience the infant waves of reform
Sweeping through my entire being;
Cannot resist the awe-filled experience
Of awakening that finally puts me on song
