UNTAMED ROVER


In the rat race of 21st century
Time when high is the level of mercury
Lost in a state of utter confusion
One among the hundred millions
When, what and how to choose? ?

While thoughts crawl upon the mind
Silent, malicious a monster that grow so giant
As the wanderer(mind) pause and hesitate
Yeah! I know it’s important
Yet incompetent to make a verdict.

Shall shovel up wealth beyond limits
And fame above the known confines
Or end all those dazed conflicts
And breathe an air of peace? ?

Race for the ego of a triumphant warrior
Conquer domains, become a renowned abductor
Or give up and live as a mere looser,
Nothing left other than to be a miser? ?

Sit back with the realistic choice
Or go for the rainbow chase? ?
Whether to put off anguish and anger
And renovate to be an anchor? ?

Whether to Jump off heights in desperation
And end the circumventing depression;
Or fly high with too little an aspiration,
Enjoying the shower of precipitation? ?

Stand beside the huddled crowd
Turn deaf to the call for change; now too loud
Or shall let the Ink that hesitated to flow,
Go through from pen to paper? ?

Whether to hold on to the obligations,
Tie up self in thousand unseen knots;
Else go crazy to the mind’s satisfaction
And pronounce the secret love? ?

Yes or no, Whether this or that,
Question remains with no dart
Variance that transect upon, still hovers
Clogging the wits, like an untamed rover.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
