My mind often wanders restlessly

Tangled thoughts stretch endlessly

While I find it difficult to define

What actually rankles this soul of mine-

Whatever I do never seems enough

I feel impoverished in the midst of stuff

I long to journey into lands distant

Challenge everything to which society is resistant

Create something beautiful and exquisite

Carve an inner shrine that I would like to visit-

Don’t know if fulfilment of these desires

Would be sufficient to douse out the fires

That burn within me, fueled by restlessness

Accounting for my omnipresent sleeplessness


I doubted the thirst of my soul would be quenched

So towards meditation my interests I bent

I learnt to focus on the moment present

Out of the window all restlessness went


I felt calmer from within instantly

As I delved deeper into meditation hesitantly..


Meditation helped still the chatter in my mind

Grateful I am that this treasure I did find

Clamoring for more in my life, I had felt restless

Calm and balanced, now I was satisfied with less..
