Thoughtless Thoughts Poem by Reshma Ramesh

Thoughtless Thoughts

Rating: 3.3

thoughtless thoughts

life is nothing but just thoughts flowing in our head
it is what we are thinking till we are dead
those thoughts become us and we are given a name
which gives no clue of what we became

we do things which we are meant to do
thoughtless, thoughtful false and true
we fight with all our might into the blue
our feelings, emotions subdue

cracking mirrors, hungry children
burning trees, happy dolphins
cervical cancer, beauty tips
suicide bombers, fish and chips

our thoughts are formed within a blink
does it matter what we think
the world turns around without our appraisal
as we look for light in the abyssal

as we live and continue to see
we can fight and win but never be free
from the thoughts that make us and break us
and from beauty, love and living we digress

This poem is really nice since it is about thoughts which surely can make and break the individuality of an individual.

I think the persona here is indeed the space of the mind itself. It speaks nothing but the truth within and can penetrate every external strokes of man. 10 for this one.
