Heart's Emptiness

Poem By Anshul Gupta

Seven seas shall prove insufficient
to fill an empty human heart
A cool shower of God's love
Shall only quench
this burning sand of desert.

Friends, Family,
Relatives and Neighbors
All try to fill in the space;
Poor fellows with good intentions
end up blowing inside
cold airs of their own emptiness.

This dry slice of bread
Needs greasing of faith;
Only God has the sugar
for this bitter tea;
Worldly sweetness
shall leave it all tasteless.

Centuries have passed
This dark room is waiting
for a ray of light
Don't leave anything
for the next moment
Now is the time, now is the time.

All the pushing and pulling
that you do to my consciousness
I have finally come to realize and know.
My dear mind, before long,

Roses are red
Violets are blue

A Prayer

I am grateful to thee Lord for gifting me human life
I am grateful to thee for the sheen of my soul

I am grateful for the heart full of love.

Our Love Is Eternal

Together we have been
Together we will be
Centuries have passed
Many will still pass


The amorphous clouds threaten the Sun
of stealing its peace and shine;
but the Sun never doubts its strength
and it never whines.

Living In God's Feet

Shower on me your love O God
I am ready to get drenched
Flood my heart with tears of faith
I am ready to get swept.
