Boundaries of Life!

A boundary has vast meaning.
But it has an intense meaning in ones life
Though Lines invisible
Only it's burnt can be felt
while trespassing it.
These are the powerful lines
Meant physically as well as emotionally.
Yet it carries a simple meaning
Where heart is controlled by mind.
Control on ones desire and emotions.
Its like an oath taken by self
One will stand to it, whatever may come on the way.

    Life itself sustains itself between two boundaries.
    One is having been born, we cannot go back. We are in we are in.
    But in between the boundaries are hurdles that we need to challenge and make progress.
    Moral boundaries are guidance.
    Very subtle question.
    But I like the poem.well written, terse and to the point.

    Boubdaries come in four stages or types; soft, spongy, rigid, and flexible.
    Everyone sane has boundaries set to protect the inner self. In addition to personal boundaries
    there are subconscious group or social boundaries, but it is an extremely complicated concept
    that has been part of man's psyche since the stone ages... and to complicated for just a comment
    to a poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
