The Eternal Joy

The Eternal Joy

A Poem by Jiya K. MacKenzie

Down below the materialistic world,

Down below the sorrows of life,

Far away from the civilization,

There is a place which has an eternal joy.

 

A joy which cannot be experienced

When one is alive

 

People loath that joy,

But once experienced,

It becomes a part of their impassive life.

 

That joy is of a deep slumber that extends till ad infinitum,

No one wakes from that slumber.

I like this penning. I know this place.

Within each of us is a beautiful fountain.
Its well issues forth boundless goodness.
Its waters wash away the woes of the world.

This is true joy.

Journey inward; seek it out, drink freely of it.
Renew the vitality of life and give freely of it.
Allow it to nurture the gardens of those around you.

The dark evil spirit smiles too, as it drains innocence from timid hearts, inspiring distrust. For this reason it appears to be shun, but is merely hidden behind tears of yesterday's illusions.

Understanding is blocked when perception is tethered to the clay we are made of.

Few are willing to release their controlling grip, for it feels like death to self image and more so to predestined notions.

Take no heed. Share the abundance of eternal joy.

When the light is on, it shines the same on all. Some will only see faults and follow the roaches into the shadows, others will bask, absorb, and reflect.
Such is the nature wheat and tares.

mmm...I am trying to understand why people would "loath that joy"......are you referring to the fact that people fear or hate death? I'd say that those who believe in a life hereafter actually welcomes death, because it becomes a gateway into a new world...........

You touched upon some interesting concepts here, but I think that you may want to sharpen your expression a little bit to make sure that your readers are fully on the same page with you.
