English Poetry

A time comes

when his heart and mind rebel

and chastise—

‘This is enough.’

 

But, the force of feelings in him

subsides after a while

as if it is a periodic process

and nothing else.

 

Garrulously talking at mealtime,

daydreaming while meditating,

falling asleep with the television on

or sitting on internet for hours.

 

Gossiping in the canteen,

taking interest in rumors,

making rumors

or criticizing others.

 

Doing nothing properly,

getting annoyed too easily,

lying at sixes and sevens

and on being caught, saying— no, no.

 

On being fed up with all this,

his heart and mind rebel

and want some big change.

 

But, it seems to him

nothing is going to change in his life.

He is a slave to his habits,

not a rebeller— yes.
