Quiet Mind

I wished to quiet my mind
I tried to close the doors to my senses
I struggled not to hear or feel
I tried, tried and tried again

I pulled in blankness
I tied it inside my mind
For blankness kept troubling me
A pain of push and pull
I wanted relief
I wanted to feel better
For I lit a candle inside me
It brought light to my blank mind
I kept watching that candle
Through my mind’s eyes
I saw the candle melting away
There was no wind
There was no rain
I felt the warmth of light
The warmth of heat
From the candle inside my mind
Let it burn
Let it bring brightness
Let the brightness wash away
All my darkness
And bring in the light
For me to see what I am!

Is it possible to achieve?

Today,on the street I felt a smell from my early childhood,when i was really happy and carefree.That smell came out of nowhere and shook my all body and mind.
Maybe,it was a candle with childhood memories and that calmed my soul and mind.
It helped to drive away all other thoughts and to remember who I am.
