A Dichotomy - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan
I tossed my heart into the sky
It took flight on the wings of delight,
I saw it soar high in its flight
Like a balloon, buoyed by an airy diet.
Soon I saw it reach the clouds
Call me up with words clear and loud,
But my mind was a creature too proud
And so it scurried away into the crowd.
My heart cried out, but in vain
For my mind didn't dare venture out of my brain,
My heart now surely in nerve wrenching pain
Burst and fell into a roadside drain!
So friends, had my mind followed the heart
Such a mishap would never have occurred,
Ah let our mind be where the heart is
So that both can tango in joy and peace!
