The Solution

Ehsan Sehgal

What to do with the wisdom
That does not give you
The solution
Of the pain and sorrows
Of the mankind
And the injustice to the people
That hurts,
And harms me
I have stopped thinking
All such terms of pain
Now my way is
The Divine's way
The spiritual direction,
And the purity of the soul
That gives me relief
And the free
From all painful thoughts
It is the peace of the mind,
Love of the heart
It is also the solution
Of all the problems
And the worries
That's why
Now my way is
The Divine's way
