Never Mind!

--A Poem by Vipul Shaha



Hey Mind!

Hope you don’t mind,

I want to ask you…

What are these wanderings that you do?

My mind, being seen n' baffled…

Tumbles…and fumbles…

Hmm...I too wonder…

‘bout my restless wanderings…!

Ah, well never mind…

I ask my mind again…

What is it that you keep longing?

Umm…no…nothing…

I keep myself busy…

With anything n’ everything…

You may call me a kid or a monkey…

Never pausing or ceasing…

day-dreaming…or even screaming…

I’m ever so hard-working!

I’m thinking…analyzing...

Sometimes even agonizing...

Every moment, I’m liking or disliking!

Fears n’ worries…memories n’ stories…

I keep them carrying…

Back n’ forth…past n’ future

I’m constantly traveling…

I nudge my mind again...

…what purpose is all this serving?

This constant choosing…chattering...

Isn’t it so very confusing!!?

All your critiquing n controlling

Wouldn’t it be so tiring?

Ever noticed how you really feeling?

What do you say mind…

If we chill n enjoy just being?

‘Cuz whatever’s meant to be

is anyway happenin'...!

My mind throws tantrums n begins freezing..

Uhh…are you firing me bro?

Haha, not at all my dear…

It’s time for us to grow!

Let's drop the baggage n dance…

to the tune of this moment!

You ready for a promotion?

To flow with mindful observation!

How my mind smiles n’ jumps!

Hugs the Heart…

It knows now…that every moment…

Is a brand new start!
