The bubble deep within

The bubble deep within

Beyond the din in all of us
There’s a core of happiness
Just like a small bird in a tree
Who just let’s life’s caress
Cloak him in its sweet delight
Then flees from a bird of pray
Yet returns and sings again his song
As he celebrates the day.

We humans all have this within
Behind the foolish din
All one has to really do
Is take a look within
Behind all of life’s misery
There’s a bubble deep inside
And all it really wants to do
Is come out from where it hides.

Most they wallow in there mire
They’re choked by all those weeds
Buried in their deep desires
Drowned within their greed
So filled with wants they do not see
The sweetness of their lives
But still this bubble deep within
Is there, it still survives.

    Hi there friend. I read your bubble poem carefully. I am sure that this "bubble" element is evident of a deeper philosophy and set of conclusions. Well written ballad and thank you for it. G.

    Hi Giorgio, in my experience, when one clears out all the neurotic fears. There is a kind of happiness that is at the back of everything. It comes from a lot of self enquiry, and is so worth cultivating. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter
