Treasure Island

the inner voice of mind


I thought of swimming in the sparkling waters of the
lake,
the inner voice of mind held me back saying,
deathly green waters will suck you deep within the
point of no return.

i mused on skiing down the ice clad mountain,
the inner voice of mind refrained me from doing so,
as mighty avalanches of snow would strangulate me,
burying me a few feet beneath the frozen coat of
spring water.

i pondered on penning a few lines of composition,
the inner voice of mind made strong inroads of denial,
saying that the carbon ink was sure to leak,
creating embarrassed smudges on the flawless sheet of
paper.

i speculated on investing in the stock market,
the inner voice of mind guffawed in pools of laughter,
admonishing me from proceeding forward,
as the entire index would collapse within seconds of
my investment.

i visualized gulping large barrels of tropical coconut
water,
the inner voice of mind stringently halted my stream
of fantasy thought,
reinforcing my mind with obnoxious visions of the
water containing traces of
snake poison.

i perceived of spending my life with the person who
loved me,
as usual the inner voice of mind prompted me to alter
my course of action,
acquainting me of the dire consequences likely to
follow,
this time though beats of my heart were stronger than
tunes of mind,
facilitating me to work antagonistic to the mind,
execute a perception into pragmatic reality,
despite the precarious influence of INNER VOICE OF
MIND.
