Brain - Poem by Sanjay Mehta

Lord giveth the brain
To be sane
Which we all
Have profaned.

Made amongst us
Few insane
Mirrored reflection
For the sane.

But this brain
Of the sane
Has become
A source of bane.

For him
Lacks the brain.

No I, No my
No boundaries
To restrict
The flight.

Oh brain
Thou has
This animal tamed.

    This is an important aspect of our life. This brain makes us write poetry, guides us to be good, makes us fall in love, makes us do misdeeds, makes us think...and more... A beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    The misuse of brain is a historic eventuality prompted by the so called progress based on materialism.
    God who remained idle for 4 billion years without giving sense to the dinosaurs and the other living beings of remote past blundered just 6000 years ago...
    We are help[ess

    By misusing the brain, we make it a bane, though God deposited it in us as a boon. A splendid write! ! (Report) Reply

    What a beautiful message conveyed!
    Now-a-days human beings behave no less than animals n we r one of them. We have forgotten what is the actual purpose of the things gifted to us by God. We misuse them, and that is the reason for our insanity. Once you've don't value what u have, u lose it, u lose the essence, u lose the preciousness. Hats off. Awesome write.

    It is mainly brain that makes us so different from other animals. But now-a-days people are following animal instincts. Even some people are following satanic instincts. Time befitting excellent write. (Report) Reply

    Everyone of us is partly insane. Many very intelligent were also labeled insane. But a very good angle to present.. good one Chief. (Report) Reply

    Man is the crown of creation and sad affair is this if he makes the worst use of this brain, so divinely gifted...but your poem is the right use of it...the word-play is v good...thanks for sharing... (Report) Reply

    You always write taking different theme from different point of view. This one is also beautiful like the other poems.Brain should not work as being tamed by animal power. Great thought! (Report) Reply

    the best in life is, no one can control us what to think and what not to. We have this freedom until now, though there is some changes slowly seen in some part of the world! Nice poem! (Report) Reply
