The Seat of Thoughts
The Custodian of unseen actions
The Inner Window of the body
The location where ideas are masticated
The Citadel of ‘weights’
The Decision Maker
Mind is Life.
It shows your personality
It portrays your true color
It defines your emotions
It reveals your real intentions
It pictures your life ideologies
It reflects your filthiness, purity, maturity, childishness, stupidity, wickedness, exposure, innocence, naiveness, corruptness, resentment, happiness, mediocrity, excellence…
It gives a shadow of your upbringing, belief system and clique of friends
It determines your vocalizations
The Mind shapes your Life.
It is porous
It is fragile
What’s going on in there?
What do you fill it with?
What do you let into it?
Are you in full control of your mind?
Do you place it under constant scrutiny?
Some are absent-minded
The mind is not in its ‘physical state’
Can easily notice the girl in mini skirt
‘Stray’ thoughts easily cave in
Leads to forgetfulness
Others are beclouded
Some minds are like a ‘marketplace’
The house rent, the children’s tuition fees, the next meal, the creditor’s next move, the hospital bills…
Crossing the expressway
Mindless of the ‘physical’
Mindless of the surrounding
In his state of ‘mind’
In the subconscious
Drowned in his problems
Immersed in thinking
Wishing for a salvage
The unplanned happens
A hit, a gush of blood
There’s unbearable pain
Shouts and screams fill the air
Then comes the hush, the checks, the long silence
Out of the blues, loud sirens
Wishing for a ‘Reverse’
Wishing for an attentive ‘Mind’
Keep it in its ‘physical state’
Keep it attentive
Keep it clean
Guard it with everything you’ve got
In it, lies Life and Death.
