Dark Night And The Sleepless Mind


I woke up again
In the dead of the night,
Thoughtless and blank,
I was lying on the mat,
Starring at the green roof,
Trying to find answers,
To questions unknown.

There was noise amidst the silence,
Tiny rain drops hitting the roof,
And then trickling down to the ground,
It was some strange music,
Being composed by nature in the darkness.

I tried to close my eyes,
Drown myself in unstructured thoughts,
I could feel the soul
Humming silent prayers,
Wishing for sanity to return,
Voices kept echoing in darkness,
Telling me that I’m trying too hard.

I slowly gave into the chaos,
Kept swimming through cluttered mind,
I was being dragged deeper,
Into the trap of the unknown,
Where they thoughts of my soul,
Or manifestation of my mind?

Was there no end to this?
The complex ordeal of mind and soul.
There was no answer, no clarity,
And I kept sinking in deeper.
I just hoped from within
That sanity would prevail eventually,
And I would be able to
Fall asleep listening to the lullaby
Being sung by the rain.

  1. What do I say.....sometimes the poet inside us gets this divine existence. Only thing I did not get is the "green roof"??

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
