This is one of my favorite poems from Ihsan over at iiThinks. This is taken from his book “Finally Back Home”. I love how these words lead us gently to the priceless treasure that is buried deep within us all.
Where The Light Enters
Nature is a sacred text Pages with the deepest Truths Beyond all the outward forms Lies the secret place of wisdom
Valuable things are buried deep The ocean’s pearls and mountain’s gems If you wish for worthy objects You must brave the depths of darkness
Here is where the lesson lies It’s the same with you and I We must feel the hurt and pain Campaign in the aching grief
Beyond all the crippling fear Beyond all the violent tears Unveiled is the greatest treasure Nothing but your holy heart
So meet the dark with a smile It’s a gift that knows no price Priceless is the path And each step that leads you in
