Meandering mind


Idle mind stokes many a doubt-
nagging, always fading in and out;
Momentarily in the labyrinth they are lost,
yet out of nowhere, the mind they accost.

Dismal thoughts unnerve you with their pace,
they pull you into a mind-numbing pseudo-race.
feasting on luscious spread of hidden fears,
they threaten to drown you in your tears.

We can only waffle in shock or awe-
flummoxed by life's mysteries
or mesmerized by its hidden beauties.
We are only human, is that a flaw? 

Ah the mind wanders like a cloud-
seeking solitude in a crowd;
yearning for coterie in wilderness;
rambling on in search of semblance...
