Musings of an infinite soul

I’m tired of pretending
wearing a dozen different masks
for different occasions
at different locations
completing a hundred tasks
this drama seems unending
I’m tired of pretending

I’m fed up of conforming
to the whims and demands
of this capricious society
its weird ideas of propriety
no one understands
my attempts of transforming
I’m fed up of conforming

I’m weary of my mind’s games
played with ghosts of belief
haunting me wherever I go
as I struggle hard to grow
never a moment of relief
my soul is up in flames
I’m weary of my mind’s games

I’m sick of this eternal strife
a ceaseless series of conflicts
resulting from a clash of egos
even as friends become foes
and everyone only contradicts
I’m exhausted of living this life
I’m sick of this eternal strife

Choosing Now

leave a comment »

The past is a trail left behind
The future cannot be defined
Only the present is aligned
with my heart, soul and mind

Life is not a throw of dice
For I have the gift of choice
I can either be sad or rejoice
Be silent or air my voice

I pray for having the wisdom
The vision and the freedom
To seek God’s rich kingdom
Over plain Earthly stardom

I don’t belong to this world
That has from eons whirled
Keeping me coiled and curled
Now it’s time I unfurled

Infinity is my destination
My journey’s ultimate station
All else is a false notion
Only my ego’s perception

So I’ll give up my past, I vow
And future’s course I’ll allow
While I choose the eternal now
In the company of the Tao
