The Metamorphosis!

Image credit- Stefan Keller- Pixabay

Born with a silver spoon,

callous, cavalier attitude

defined his personality,

life, was sinful vulgar indulgence.

Until

 one incident radically transformed him.

Today,

he lives with his master in the distant hills

donating all his riches,

 a new identity, pens  the next chapter,

gives renewed meaning to life

the debris of the past buried,

his soul brims with contentment

experiences abundance of spiritual wealth.

    I really like this message. It’s never too late to grow, to change. As long as you have time you can move onto a “new chapter”.

    Reminds me of the journey of Buddha towards enlightenment. Having experienced both extremes gave him the necessary perception and depth.
    Thank you for this beautiful reminder! Have a great day! 🙌

    A very meaningful composition, R. I believe that contentment comes through enlightenment, when we understand our purpose on earth, and then the path to tread suddenly emerges in front of us.

      Absolutely N. Sometimes one incident is all it takes for this and sometimes it is the gradual understanding and maturity that helps us comprehend the essence of our purpose in life.

      If the repentance is from the heart and the change genuine, I am sure the sins will be forgotten. Thanks Meenakshi. Stay safe.
