I am excited to share my first business poem with you. Enjoy and get inspired!
By Martina Violetta Jung
All truth you can reveal.
What am I doing?
I shy away to break your seal.
I go about my business,
Afraid to look inside,
Take meetings, planes and dinners,
Check news, on network friends and hide.
New markets I find, and customers too,
Never dare to break the rules,
Obey to stock exchange and business planes,
Let nature pay the dues.
I self-exploit for further gain,
Terrified to fall behind,
I ignore my body’s warning pain,
Maintain the treadmill’s speed is how I survive.
I feel unloved – emotionally empty, numb and sad inside,
I keep pretended happiness,
Unwilling to drop my daytime mask,
Weeping silently to the stars.
My Soul, I know, you wait and wander,
When do I dare to listen to thy call?
But I, I just keep busy,
Too petrified to face the meaning of it all!
Yet, I hear your whispers in the middle of the night.
You want me to meet my destiny.
Can that be right?
No! Too far away, too dangerous, compared with how I run my life today.
But yet, so sweet thy voice, and what it has to say.
“What shall I do?” I wonder.
Why do you shake my honesty?
Do I dare to admit, too selfish and too ignorant,
Were my past accomplishments?
“Oh God, I am ready now”, please take care of me!
I am prepared to jump,
To a life that is guided by thee.
Tell me now what I need to know!
What is “enough to own”?
What does it truly need “to be myself”?
What does it truly need “to love”?
To male and female traits inside of me alike!
And once I balance them,
I shall emerge a mirror of divine.
That is the road to travel, the answer to your call.
I meet my destiny in signs along the way:
And finally, I dare to fall.
I let go of all the attributes,
Which were by no means me.
Freed from expectations and appearances,
Finally, I allow my Soul to be.
My body finds its balance, its harmony,
Accepting all its needs.
My work is filled with meaning now,
I impact sharing, equality and peace.
My heart is guiding me through day and night,
In touch and tune with up above.
A life worth living for humanity,
I live my Soul’s true love!
