I can’t find you in the temple,
I can’t find you in the mosque.
I find you in every creation of yours,
From a mountain so high to a river so vast.
I can’t reach you through the ‘poojas’,
I can’t reach you through scriptures.
I reach you through the love I receive,
Finding you in my service for others.
I can’t do anything special to appease you,
I can’t fear your decisions.
I constantly try to accept whatever you give,
Joy, laughter or grim situations.
I can’t desire you outside of me,
I can’t fathom you as anything else but my conscience.
I see you as the guide within,
Every second, every moment, every tiniest bit of my existence.
