Mind In A Mirage Poem by Vikrant Jog

Mind In A Mirage

Rating: 5.0

Every second I crave,
For new substance to play,
Every second a new Avatar,
Intelligence of my subconscious,
An attractive manifestation,
Thousands like Jesus and Buddha,
To save mankind,
Servants of slippery circumstances,
Left unenlightened black souls,
Travelling towards renunciation,
Keeping pride,
Weakening from the inset,
Effort to escape my Karma,
Left in vain to get it right,
Felt like an ascetic,
Away from the world,
Wandering in search,
For what they call, 'Peace',
Idiots, straying for a thing within ourselves...

a strong word is used in the last line, but peace can't be contained in our hearts only and it can't be found in our mind only with out the help of others, so we have to be peaceful to ourselves and help maintaining the peace of others. Searching is not wrong and no one is an idiot to look for peace outside, from where they can get the inspiration to be peaceful, as peace is not permanent! any way quite interesting your poem!

Mind is struggling through many vivid images between surreal background and colors, till sometimes we thought its real but if we look deep and understand what it talking and showing, we will master the rules_Soul
