When it’s dark, look inward; you will be taken forward.
WHEN THE PATH IS LOST: haiku


When the path is lost,
Only darkness visible.
The gaze turns inward.

The inner conscience
Shows the lamp of divine light.
Ray of hope appears.

It was there always
But was masked by ignorance.
Don’t lose it again.

He is there with you
Through the valley and desert,
But you ignore Him.

Put out your own lamp.
Learn to live by His true light.
You will not lose path.
