Into Tranquility... - Poem by Ghazala Shoeb

Let the mind breath for a fraction of time.
In the open spaces beyond the wreckage of the world,
Where haunting sprits of past,
Intricate thoughts, and worries don’t follow.
Tensions and emotions don’t foray,
Paralyzing body and mind to make them hollow.
Faraway from endless cries, fanatic norms, lunatic chase,
Deadly ordeals of tangled relations, temptations, conciet,
Screaming life crushed unseen in long run,
And rubbles and ruins of bleeding humanity,
Unconscious of vices and traumas of the world,
Let the mind lull into tranquility.
Just for a fraction of time as a break,
Like few moments of rebirth to a dead!

    fawning to wind, really worth to soul

    It is agreat poem on the topic-tranquility. The world is really full of worries that are more dangerous than Greek furies. No moment of relief and solace can be snatched from ever worried time.' Just for a fraction of time as abreak ' shows the intensity of the desire of peace. The whole poem is praiseworthy. (Report)Reply
