The journey to “Now”!

The feral mind refuses to be tamed

it forays into the past

latches on to the unpleasant memories

digs out hurt and scars afresh.

Then it dashes to the future, unabashed

dwells on worries unknown

embraces an incredulous streak.

As it oscillates between the past and the future

drowning in the torrent of thought’s flow,

I navigate, to harness it in the path

of living in the present.

The task has been daunting

but the efforts worth it,

transcending my life beyond imagination

to the boundless blessings of ” Now”!

  1. Wow, that was really well crafted Radhika!!! So true is the mind that pulls us into so many directions and the job at hand is always to navigate between them and bring us to the Now like you said. I love your choice of words in poem. Truly inspirational! ❀️

  2. Beautiful poem Radhika! Taming the flow of the mind is very challenging, as worries and memories drown it in its deluge, and try prevent it from living the past.
    Mine almost perennially stays in the past times, and it is with lots of effort that I drag it back every now and then πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, it takes a huge effort to bring it to the present Deb. While I tend not to worry too much about the future, my mind loves to stay put between layers of the past. Still working on it 😊.
      Have a relaxed Sunday Deb.
