Enlightenment

Bright light penetrates my mind with bliss,
Calmly injecting wisdom that gives hope,
Soothing all my fears with a kiss of peace.

Pieces of liberating wisdom ease –
My mind, although in darkness, starts to grope,
Bright light penetrates my mind with bliss.

My decisions and actions are amiss.
Understanding comes, then I stop to mope –
Soothing all my fears with a kiss of peace.

My body sores, inflicted with disease.
Knowledge cures, and slowly I start to cope,
Bright light penetrates my mind with bliss.

Uphill paths cause my persistence to cease.
Learning comes along, flattening the slope,
Soothing all my fears with a kiss of peace.

Oh, how can I be so callow and miss,
That wisdom, like God, knows no bound or scope,
Bright light penetrates my mind with much bliss,
Soothing all my fears with a kiss of peace.
