[470] Clarity and Doubts of The Mind

Autopilot days and⁣
fighting eyelids ⁣
The second voice⁣
of wisdom cries⁣
on its birth ⁣
Momentary flow ⁣
in the moment ⁣
feels eternal⁣
A customary dream⁣
filled with secrets ⁣
that an effortless ⁣
soul will not unravel

Am I a dissembler⁣
stuck in my own way?⁣
Self-centred mind ⁣
a bird that won’t go away?⁣
The self-aware plight⁣
of being aware of being aware⁣
Words begin to loop ⁣
Am I being aware, being aware?⁣
Answers lead to questions⁣
Action just hides away⁣
This is another version of me⁣
in need of understanding⁣ rather
than be at the end of my fickle judgement


I don’t usually comment on how the poem was birthed but this time I feel like expressing that. First comes the word for me, almost always. It loops in my mind until I accept to put it on paper. Then comes a piece of music to it that holds the rhythm of the words to come. I just wish I knew how to make music to fully express what’s in my mind. But till then, I hope that you can hear the music while you read this and for all unborn poems to come.

  1. Wow Rahul, this is simply mesmerizing. It’s just magical. There is this deep, powerful rhythm that gives the piece such strength. I absolutely love it. And your process of how this poem was born is very very similar to my process…I love what you say about the music. Well done, my friend 🤗🖤✨💫

  2. Wow, love this line. “Am I a dissembler⁣
    stuck in my own way?⁣
    Self-centred mind”. It is so true and I often have to drag my mind away…
