Set me free

There is a sadness in my heart
the fear of imperfection
in this duniya haunting me
tearing me every now and then

I am a wreck within me
caged, yearning to be free

Troubled by the blindness
the heart has stopped to see
the soul is bruised
there is no respite

I am a wreck within me
caged, yearning to be free

tell me that this imperfection here
it is but a sign you see
hinting at the eternal truth
of a world that is perfect

Free of self, free of you
where there are
no cages , no shackles
a soul that shall be free

I am a wreck within me
heal me, set me free
