Consciousness


I am a Guest in my own house
Stranger in my own memories
I give shoulder to my own funeral
Fire to my own pyre

My Consciousness is my own enemy
It treats me as a nemesis
Ever encumbered under the clarity of reality
I steadily stumble

I am used to sleeping with open eyes
And awake with them being closed
I try to stop the flow of thoughts
But isn't it a thought itself

The consciousness is irrelinquishable
Till death it will persist
Wherever the eternal soul goes
These gazing eyes exist

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
