At times you’re forced to meet
The hidden voices in your head.
Find out they scare you shitless,
Wish them damned and dead.

Your head is crammed most painfully
With unanswered ‘why’s.
Hot rage is spilling over
Through your nostrils, ears and eyes.

Rage at what? Oh everything!
Yourself, more than the rest.
For losing faith and certainty
In how you’ll stand The Test.

‘There must be some way out of this’
You growl and groan with passion.
There is- a way that’s not just clean
But never out of fashion.

Set out each conflicted thought
In literary streams.
Give every twinge of fear a place,
Don’t cover up with dreams.

Just pen it all down prettily
(There’s brownie points for rhyme.)
Make it sound intense enough.
And you’re absolved of crime!

Isn’t it supremely easy?
Isn’t it a load of fun?
Why do people moan about
How tough it is to Get Things Done?

Easier said than done but a cute post nonetheless!

@Sahana- I'm glad you're feeling better now :P

@Srijata- Well, this was largely sarcastic actually. I realised that writing about how I'm oh-so-confused is often my easy way out of taking a stand. And whaddya know, I felt like writing about That itself. So this wasn't really intended to be cute :)

I like the sarcasm :D I like.Not like,but LIKE.Bujhli toh?
Laughing at oneself is harder than it seems.But then,leetul Egg,absolve yourself of crime.You do think,and deeply too.Your posts don't spill over with angst at how the world makes itself hard for You.So what you write,does-actually help.

I know the voices. They're the overlords I tell you.

Anushka said...
