Deep within our soul

there is a thought

that needs to be poured out,

but it stays submerged in us.

It is occulted so strongly

that nobody can hear it’s noise.

What perception do they hold?

What life do they own?

What stands true for one,

might be false for the rest.

It’s all mind’s game

that leads the life insane.

Why do we give so much importance

to what other person’s perception is?

Over thinking makes the mind accrue

and our gestures fumbling.

Let’s do what our heart utters

and celebrate the gift called life.

Everyone has their own perceptions

Just smile and sublime.
