The Mind's Like That. - Poem by LALATENDU KABI

If you do not guard it well
And to people your thoughts you tell
At you they are sure to laugh;
But as you become a bit tight
And do not open your thoughts right
The mind becomes tough. -1

No one can say for certainly knows
Where exactly comfort grows
Or what really is the mind's need;
All know the mind's game,
But only this they never tame,
And thrust hope on anything indeed. -2

    No one can say for certainly knows
    Where exactly comfort grows
    Or what really is the mind's need;
