Nor War, Nor Peace
written by: Rashmi Malapur Jaswal
A barrage of thoughts distract and heckle my mind,
Thoughts pulling me and fighting for my attention,
Pulling me in different directions.
These racing thoughts are maddening,
When you step in front of me, suddenly,
And hold me tight.
I stand still without a fight.
Not an iota of restlessness now.
Then again as I settle into this divinity.
Thoughts knock me down and I shirk you away,
To depart from you.
The whole day passes with this hide and seek.
When the day ends with the realization that nothing is permanent;
Nor war, nor peace!!!
