soul journey

A soul, satiated,

not with the pleasures of the world,

nor the intoxication of life;

rather, content with the taste

of love from Above,

no longer running in haste,

away from His treasure trove.

A mind, relaxed,

permitting everything to unfold,

without succumbing to strife;

passing opportunities by,

in favor of the everlasting;

for the time of reckoning is nigh,

when all accounts will be settled.

Yet, everyday I regress,

falling close to the abyss;

climbing under constant duress,

this life’s empty promises of bliss.

Is there no other recourse, to escape

the fate that awaits? Through teshuvah,

receive me back into Your grace.
