Nothing is Impossible

By Marla Maharaj

May 11th, 2015

Nothing is Impossible


Falsely we believe our ego as true

Leading us time after time into a darkened hue

Blinded by our ignorance we are led astray

Held captive by our pride; a life we so boldly portray


Awe-struck by sharp corners and dead ends unforeseen

We double back in fear wanting to alter the motion picture on the screen

As the movie rolls we realize that this was all meant to be

Life’s experiences individually patented especially for you and me


Misled by delusions we proclaim an end

Forgetting our soul’s natural compulsion to transcend

Remember Home, Remember Me

An inner voice of silence whispers, “Nothing is impossible with Thee!”


Abandon your mind and all of its thoughts

It is your enemy for the pain and suffering it’s brought

Love is the only trait that will undeniably sustain

Impossible is not our true nature, it’s our own mental restrain
