Mind’s Eye

my mind wanders these days,
most often away from where i am,
to the ends of this world,
seeking places unknown,thats who i am.

it wanders past hills,
and the deep blue seas,
past meandering rivers,
above the topmost leaf of the tallest trees.

it climbs up the highest mountains,
seeking the rising sun,
to be strong in its efforts,
like a web the spider has spun.

it seeks to count the infinite stars,
alongside the winged ones to fly,
it throws away all negative thoughts,
it only aims higher than the blue sky.

it follows not what others do,
goes not in another’s way,
it decides where it should go,
in which place should it stay.

it does what it wants to do,
what it can’t do sitting here,
why should it be stuck in this one place,
when it can be in all places dear.

it can be in a soft sweet heart,
which craves for it everyday,
to be with it till it grows old,
till its beatings fade away.

it can be in a pool of riches,
swimming in gems,silver and gold,
where it craves not more than it wants,
where joy & fortunes become ten-fold.

my mind wanders these days,
to places too far for me to see,
but it does change with its travels,
that is exactly how i want it to be.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
