# A Communication Gap - Poem by Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

In todays technological uptrend
we have the world within our hand
a network could take us all around

A gap within ourselves at hand
no technology could do to mend
a gap between the heart and mind

A dangerous gap at hand
it engulfs the soul in deep sand
no technology yet could mend

The heart would cry out for the world
the mind is petty and cold
not very far from each other the two ends

the mind is the ' doer'
the heart is the 'teller'
the mind prefers not to be a listener

soul rules the heart
fear rules the mind
conscience is the real communicator

CONSCIENCE IS THE TRUE COMMUNICATION TOO

    Thought provoking poem. If the conscience is strong enough it can also be a guiding beacon. Very well done. Thank you for sharing. :) (Report)Reply

    mindful, heartfelt write...
    sends us a great meaning...
    with truth on the reality of our feelings
    of ourselves...
    a piece to make us reflect...
    thanks for sharing your beautiful insights...

    This verse has seeds of truth which I heartedly endorse....... the mind has to be controlled then we are the master and the heart can become itself - -we often get this gap between, - - which you aptly wrote about...... thank you 10/10 from Fay. (Report)Reply

    Some theory says that there is no mind at all. Some other says that mind is in its own place, it is the man who makes hell out of heaven or heaven out of hell. The poet's communication gap solves the problem in a different way. (Report)Reply

    the heart and mind coincide
    but the conscience is the ruler

    'soul rules the heart
    fear rules the mind'

    Truly expressed: there is gap- heart and mind.
    A nice poem composed on mind's eye.
