The Enigmatic Mind

Ticking furiously
As if pitted against time
Conjuring thoughts
A dozen for a dime
Heady concoction
Of affirmations and cynicism alike
Fomenting a burst of cacophony
As though fed on a drink spiked
Rendering the senses numb
To decipher between wrong and right
Stirring emotions fraught with
An assortment of ecstasy and fright
Nudging to act
On an impulse at times
Blanking out to bring about
Indolence sometimes
A roller-coaster ride
Spanning a crescendo of satiation
When life is on a high
And nadir of frustration
Upon things going awry
Never pausing for a breather
Despite the grind
Racing, even in sub-conscience
Such is the clout of the Mind

Turbulent Undercurrents

Abandoning a ship in mid-water
Not far from being moored
Vulnerable, I feel reaching ashore
Amid high seas, marooned

Somewhat perturbed by turbulence,
At times longing to chart a new course,
It seems providence manifested an avenue
Enabling this decision enforce

Yet a disquiet within prevails,
Itching for a sneak peek into future
Seeking an affirmation from divinity
If life would offer a seamless suture

Having to stare at a blank canvas is
Perhaps daunting well past my prime
I hope to paint it with radiant colours,
Letting not accrue dirt and grime

So abrupt are the winds of change
Even a status quoist can’t desist
Relenting to the will of the omnipotent
With poise, every mortal has to drift
