In the Name: A Spiritual Poem

In the Name: A Spiritual Poem

Adhere to your own convictions

In the Name is a spiritual poem that discusses the existence (or non-existence) of one or many gods. It stresses that we should empathize with one another for our unique contributions and inherent value as human beings. Furthermore, I strongly believe that we should adhere only to our own convictions.

I’m not religious but I am spiritual despite that at a younger age, I resented my religious upbringing. I was depressed and had trouble making the right decisions. My own thoughts still make me uncomfortable sometimes. However, when I was younger, I was very insecure and ruminated over every mistake. I couldn’t cope with my emotions and could easily forgive others but could never forgive myself.

I’ve also used the following quotes in my article.

  • In “Pull the Thorns From Your Heart,” James Nielson, of the band, Senses Fail, sings:
    • “Give up a little, gain a little peace. Empty yourself, become eternity.”
  • Furthermore, philosopher, Swami Vivekananda has said:
    • “Be not Afraid of anything. You will do Marvelous work. It is Fearlessness that brings Heaven even in a moment.”
