I Am Empowered - Tanka Poetry

I Am Empowered - Tanka Poetry

1 min 286 1 min 286

I traveled so far

And wide, still, it evaded,

Every single time,

Then I realised, in me 

The tranquility existed!


I searched for it in

People and things, yet nothing

Could satisfy me,

But now I know happiness 

Emanates and ends in me!


I expected I would

Receive from others, but it

Never happened, for 

Courage cannot be transferred,

It’s generated in me!


I waited for long,

For the magical potion,

That would soon vanish

My sadness, but I was wrong

The magic belongs to me!


I soon realised

How foolish I had been, to 

Waste on vain efforts,

The power that would instead

Evolve my own solemn self!
