Faith and trust are the best to purge me of desire and ego.
Pouring rain quenches
the thirst of parched earth.
My trust in God, our Father,
dissolves disillusion and grief.
smile with new-found joy.
My heart glows with warm
thoughts of a hope, love and faith.
If I could steer clear of
the flood of disappointments,
rapids of fear, cynicism and negativity,
I know, I’d be on my way
to endless vistas of peace,
a life devoid of desire and ego.
