“Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nail.” Use it as a noun or a verb.“
As I sit at home in extended lockdowns I spend more time with myself. Trying to find the essence of life,the ‘ I ‘ inside me that had got lost somewhere. And trying to nail the truth of life,I find myself at peace that had deluded me for long.
There is turmoil in our universe for our minds are in turmoil. All around people revolve in their small orbits. We have lost empathy for our fellow beings and the nature around us. We take all the time but have forgotten to give back. Life is a masked charade.
And now it is masked in reality!
The contagion in our minds is out in open and profligating every moment.
We watch it grow helplessly.
You stand alone in the vortex,
Swirled in the whirlwind,
Mired with life’s dust.
You want to hold the winds,
But the omnipotent forces,
Sweeping you in their vicious current.
You fold what life unfolds,
As your hands stand empty,
You have no say.
