How do our lives dangle in the scale of fate,
Scared of a balanced end in the trap of death
How does our conscience lay ambush to our trust
And our mistakes like preys, lay
When shall our thoughts be free from lust
And our minds flow like a ceaseless river
When shall we start to weave our own dreams & stop relying on unyielding visions
The mind is like an unwoven thread
Bonded by lines of intertwined thoughts
As humans, our hands are tied to misled us When we lay like a potter molding wrong ideas.
We lay like spiders in a trap,
Encircled by our negative thoughts like a web-
We are the snares we try to be free from
Because we have tangled our own thoughts

"...but sometimes, the sky breaks into dawn with the proclamation of
thunderclaps & gloomy downpours, instead of the gaiety of sunshine,
as if to say that it, too, is still learning the art of joyfulness."
