Joy, Lost and Found


Searching for joy at all places,
I grew tired and longed for rest;
The struggles and woes of day to day
Took me captive and I lost my way.
Then someone whispered in my ears
The magic words for me:
"Search well, this time,within you."
Yes, I found my joy, at last,
Deep within me, resting, in my soul.

A thought provoking poem. Happiness lies within oneself and its an irony how we often wear ourselves trying to look for it elsewhere. Really true..

The title aptly suits this wonderful poem. In the beginning indeed we are all joyful...when separated, our joy is lost and Union with God brings it back.

I am really happy that you found your joy back :)
