Inquiry - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni
Last evening I was told that there is something which activates an inquiry
That raises determination,
Destroys needless longings, and felicitates aspirations to take wings and fly.
I was also told that there is something which is often talked about
Does not have a distinct form or shape,
Being mercurial and subject to change it roams about
Like the unbridled swift mind.
That something some say is thought or reflection,
And others the slim live thread that strings up the orderly and the wayward alike.
But to me it seems as that unknown something
That stays hidden always
Between the very many thin and broad lines etched upon my palm by fate,
Which lines shine and mockingly throb,
And whose secrets I must decode ere I decide
That my time is up and I should leave this stage.
