Deep With-in Me

Sometimes I look deeply within me and
I wonder what this life is all about...

Sometimes I look deeply within me and
I wonder what this life is all about
Sometimes I feel lonely
Even when I am in the midst of a crowd


Sometimes I look up to heaven for support
But heaven seems too far away
Sometimes I look down to hell
But hell seems rather too close for my liking


Sometimes I feel confused
Even when I am conscious of what I am doing
Sometimes I feel lost
Even when I know my way around


Sometimes I feel hopeless
Even when I have a shower of opportunities around me
Sometimes I feel un-lucky
Even when luck has its tentacles hanging on me


Sometimes I feel idle
Even when there is so much more to do
Sometimes I feel nobody is ready to help me
Even when my relatives are well-off


Really I look deeply and I can see
My life bubbling with vitality and elegance
Oh what a life I see
As I look deeply within me
