Treasure Island

Anamika Jayakumar

(24-6-1993 / thiruvananthapuram)

Choices and Chaos


Like a flash of light,
Runs out an untamed horse.
Months, Hours, minutes and seconds;
Once passed, the mighty horse
Hasn't yet returned back to forth.

Only vestiges is those treasured moments,
Snapshots of the departed horse.
Some give heaps of happiness and fun
Quite a few unravel with regret and pain.

At times hook up onto a state,
You seldom realise how to go
Even the docile ones
Find to be caught in a cobweb
When put to make a choice.

Some part of the routine life,
Yet a few decide the course of life,
A reply, an answer to someone patient
Though unintended, might stab at times deep.

Effortless tongues utter 'just make it',
After all it's just a choice.

When the multitudes of confusion
Pull back for another thought,
You fail out to satiate.
Amidst the confounding thoughts,
Hesitate for a verdict to make.

Whether to decide or to refrain? ?
When the interlude proves dearth,
Not because you want to fetter;
Nevertheless you are forced to quit.

Suggestions prove no use,
Words of wisdom worth mere waffles
When the defiant mind decide to roll on
With the whims and fancies of a childish mind.

Lust and anger take on to the dice,
It's when the blunders are committed! !
Only to realise the ultimate truth,
None could be crazy than me.
