I Found the Hidden Self – Author Raja Williams


The endless stories of the past

Follow me through life

Flashing visions of the hidden self


Separate from life in this moment

I am lost in the illusion of today

Longing to feel connected in some way


Ten thousand worries preoccupy my mind

The world


My family

And the day-to-day grind


But can’t you see… An occupied mind can’t be free?


As quickly as you let it

Your mind makes a movie

Showing the possibilities

The Future and the Past


Your mind presenting pictures

And making up the story

Based on your perception

And the feelings of that time


I want to be free from the past!


How am I to hear the songs of the birds?

And the sound of the breeze,

With a mind constantly preoccupied?


By taking the vow to live in the now

Breaking the habit of an auto-tuned mind

Letting go of the need to always define


My mind no longer needing to…


Explain it

Know it

Compare it

And store it

Time after time


I finally freed myself and my mind stays right here and

lives in the now!

About the Author

Ms. Raja Williams, also known as Raja’s Insight, fiercely arrived on the writer’s scene in 2012 after being awakened by a prolific poet, lyricist, songwriter, and music producer whom encouraged her to write daily. After nearly twenty years of pent up words only floating in her own head she began to allow the words to spill out onto empty pages and find way to readers  needing encouraging words.

  1. To live our lives “in the now” is the mantra I am attempting to incorporate into my daily life. Part of my daily “mental health” routine includes reading, absorbing, and responding to the daily word prompts. God bless you and thank you for providing a daily dose of inspiration and hope!
