Spiritual Unrest

It was an inner itching, a yearning, an uneasiness,
this emptiness inside me that ached and roared.
I did not know I was in a state of spiritual unrest.

The gnawing told me I needed to begin a quest.
I was clueless. I was dead. I was totally floored.
It was an inner itching, a yearning, an uneasiness.

I was hopeless, and confused, a total mess
as my head and heart argued, emotions poured.
I did not know I was in a state of spiritual unrest.

Within this turmoil, I knew Iโ€™d never find rest,
so I started with all the questions I had ignored.
It was an inner itching, a yearning, an uneasiness.

This thing I was missing I had never guessed.
I had simply surmised that my soul was bored.
I did not know I was in a state of spiritual unrest.

With inner peace and freedom Iโ€™ve been blessed
as my life, love, hope and grace have all soared.
It was an inner itching, a yearning, an uneasiness;
I did not know I was in a state of spiritual unrest.
