oh dear, seek what you need

when you are suffering, seek joy
when you are in the dark, seek light
if you see no hope, seek faith
don't panic and don't ask in haste
oh my beloved, don't seek explanations

seek your purpose, and wisdom
you shall be shown the path
seek strength and courage
the angels will fly by you
oh dear, seek what you need

ask not, why this has happened,
seek not, the dreadful, why me?
to show you the causes,
the pandora box has to be opened
oh dear, don't go there

Looking behind, and moving ahead...

She looks behind, only a glance
Dark and desolate the path
With melancholy and deep longing
But she can see where the light is coming from

Thousand memories pacing, racing, seeking attention
Each one afraid of oblivion, of losing
Selling themselves and binding more
Building a fabric, with threads of pain

A voice from deep inside rises
Stands up and demands to be heard, followed
The feet move forward, one step and then another
She knows where the light is coming from...

My heart is weeping!

Is it all happening according to your plans,
Killings in the name of supreme God,
Or, are you testing us when we will take action?
Should we wait for Peace or fight for Peace?

Should we pity the wrong-doers and pray for their wisdom,
Or, fight like Arjunas of this Yuga?
Are we ignorant or are we submissive?
Show us the path, throw some light

Shall we believe that all the victims had their destinies,
Or, should we stand up and say, 'this is wrong'?
Can we say, birth and death are, but passing seasons,
Or, rise like Kali and do asura-samhara!

Oh! Lord! Give me wisdom; Give me strength.
Wisdom to know what is right,
Strength to do that that is right!
Oh! Lord! My heart is weeping
Is it part of your plan, or are you testing?
