Be You

Why do you despair, oh little flower,

Searching the milling crowds around you

Hoping to find that elusive bliss,

When all the while, don’t you know,

That what you look for without,

Exists right within you?

You are all that you ever needed,

You are all that you will ever need.

Pine not, my tender heart,

Waste not your precious pearls,

On a world that fears the expanse,

Of your open heart, of your myriad hues.

They see you through the shades of their lives,

So they see the you, they want to see,

And not the you, you want them to see.

The only one that truly deserves you, my love,

If you didn’t already know, is you.

You are all that you ever needed,

You are all that you will ever need.

So lie still, oh delicate heart,

Don’t fling and flail your limbs,

Against the torrents of life.

Lie still, and let the Tsunami wash over you.

For don’t you know, when the hurricane strikes,

It is the tallest tree, and the proudest pole,

That gets uprooted, while the humble leaves,

Sail along in bliss, intact, in the nature’s lap.

Lie still, and let the current guide you along,

Soak in the experience,

Take in the joy of your own company, for my dear,

You are all that you ever needed,

You are all that you will ever need.
