The Enemy within

Don’t look for foes outside,

Because like a wild monkey in your head it resides.

Incessantly pounding your head,

Never letting you to take rest.


It bombards your head with anxious thoughts,

And initiates tornadoes and violent storms.

That’s the duty of Mr Mind,

You can call him Mr Unkind.


It will always try to cloud the skies of clarity,

Fill your conscience with doubts of diverse varieties.

You will always find yourself amid conflicts,

And from your heart peace will eventually perish.


Mind when controlled is a God,

Uncontrolled it’s worst than a Satan.

It can construct when properly tamed,

Devastation it will cause when untamed.


The worst war is the war which rages inside us,

And the cause is this mind which resides in our skull.

No negotiations and no treaties are possible,

You are banished from your own kingdom.


The heart which quietly watches all drama,

Always tried to show you the path of Nirvana.

The ignorant you always muted its voice,

With eyes full of pity it moans, ”Hope you had adhered to my advice”.
