Thinking and just thinking …

I am tired to thinking even while sleeping,
of dreaming a daily episode …
As I encounter my shadow creeping,
it lingers to pen down a fortnightly episode.

‘I am done struggling,’ tells my soul,
‘For I am heavy with thoughts!’
‘Don’t hurl me towards your unruly goal …’
‘in the hapless pursuit of connecting the dots.’

I try to free myself from the whims of excellence,
and let my soul float.
As it escapes the cage of the worldly turbulence,
we peacefully sleep on a good note …

‘You will be where you are destined to be …’
‘… there’s no use being abode to the destruction within.’
‘There’s a line beyond which you should see,’
‘but be gratified and do not wear thin …’ 
'Sit, relax and watch life happen.' says my soul.

  4. Thank you Hassan! It simply means that sometimes you need to stop being too hard on yourself regarding your career progression in life and leave it to destiny. However, it shouldn't be mistaken into maintaining a carefree attitude ... everybody is struggling at some point in life but you shouldn't succumb to it to the point of over-thinking your mind into melancholy.

    Hope you got the point. :)
