The preconscious debts

aggrandize the realm of karmas,

Nature holds the neck tight

Expeditiously dragging one

to obey its orders.

You scorn and it berates,

whips hard enough to make you weep.

One cajoles

Falls at the feet


Not knowing being dragged for which karma!

It adjures to let know the reasons at least,

for acumen fails.

But ways of destiny stay abstruse.

Compunction leads to nowhere.

One has to bow the head low

So low that the need to comprehend remains no more,

Needs remain no more.

Surrender is the ultimate poultice.
