This Diwali

I am done with cleaning the house,

I am done with buying and giving gifts,

I am done with seeking validation,

I am done with pleasing others,

I am done with looking for happiness,

I am done with deciphering meaning in the written word,

I am done with being inspired by the spoken word,

I am done with finding peace and calm without.

This diwali, I am lighting a light within.

Seeking all answers from within,

Looking for happiness within,

Finding the eluding peace within.

For only I know what lies within.

Let’s all this diwali discover the self

And let its bright light shine through.

Happy Diwali.

      1. It does sound like it! I love the holidays, our Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Year’s. Do you enjoy fireworks on New Year’s like we do?🙏💖
