Peace Within Turmoil

Just Rein in the Mind

Amid the worst traffic jam, everyone I glance at is sombre,

Why the faces shed so gloom ? like ogress, the red light looks,

It's not that I don't boil, I am caught in "why" arose in me.

Hard days ever trouble me, and thorns prick and pierce my heart,

I stumble upon hard rocks, the frowns make me uneasy,

My ears slaves to dulcet tones, I escape from storms in me.

Suave when in my canoe, waters take a violent turn,

When my heart beats in bliss,my mind erupts in a rage,

Everything that looks agile, why turns weak and pale ?

Baking into fire like a pot, have to endure some more time,

Atop a pinnacle with ease, so fracid yet raw in love,

The Orchard oozes odor, warns of the gorge's paws.

To embrace life with storms, I curve out surface to move on,

Life is not what I crave to see, it isn't my pleasant thoughts,

Beauty is not some bright charms, but peace won from turmoil.

Wonder what worth they are ! words that broke my heart,

Smiles turn into eruptions,wait for the bewitching eyes !

When I stay, someone sails, I have to only rein in my mind.

      I love how you use the traffic jam to discuss the much deeper anger and unease that has been caused probably by multiple things in life and how you realize that you need to be stronger than the emotion but this is never as easy as it sounds. perfectly produced and delightfully poignant. Wonderful poetry! Jamie

      Somehow you arose the angst in me and then the calmness all in one piece. This is a masterpiece. Within the envelopment of peace within a travesty is when we truly grow. Thank you for true art with words.

      ps - I had to look up fracid, great word!

      You are too generous in your praise of this piece. Eric, I was searching for an appropriate word to fit in that I stumbled upon this word"fracid". This sounds so beautiful and magical and I too learnt a new word. Thanks for reading, appreciating and such very kind and generous words.

      Very beautiful, Bro. I forgot to tell you about the lovely colour of the 'flame' poem but the colour of this one reminded me.

      Very nice and welcome to the group, O poet.

      ...and over the hustle and bustle of life comes a fascinating write from an exquisite writer from New Delhi in the name of Harishprasad.

      I love how you examined nature and put it into parallel with how you feel.

      Awesome hub! Up and sharing.

      Peace~
