when mind.crawlWander()…

Sometimes I travel to the past

In short term trips triggered

By longing that shadows cast

When destiny gets to snigger

Oh no, destiny did say I?

For, believe I not in the beast,

In a world fueled by power of I

Unless the effort is ceased.

Trials of creative endeavour

Battered though by routine’s rut

Into a state of cunning devour

Stringing into a series of but.

When can the mind crawl-wander?

Sneaking in and out of pits of wonder,

Without any shame and guilt

Thrust by traps of structure built

Over years and bundled into badges

Of customs, traditions and culture

Flattening all individual’s edges

Into a shape not one’s signature

Flashing lights of alarm when

Any outlier is on verge of incoming

The badges desire not competence

But only indistinguishable compliance

Only so that none rises above the rest

And preserve harmony of the thoughtless nest.

Ponder over the meaning of life

In constant pursuit only to unravel

A meaninglessness of existence

In a world of uncertain free will

In bubbles of prejudices and influences

The only morality then being

Integrity, love and virtue upholding

In beliefs of strength and curiosity

And never to waver in tranquility.
