Tete-A-Tete With SOUL

No one knows what future holds.
Yet I plan for years.
Every moment I worry about the future - about the unknown.
Past is gone, tomorrow has to come.
But Present is right now with me.

I hope for this, I crave for that.
It has been like this for years, I have been existing always – I have never died.
I have changed bodies, but have not changed my nature.
I plan a lot, I think a lot.
I am foresighted.
I always amaze myself, you and people around you, by proving my vision right.
But I am scared deep inside.
Scared of knowing all.
I want to relax. I want to breathe.
I want to err and seek care.
I want to sleep without the thoughts.
I want to seek ‘MOKSH’ as people say – coz I have been always, I want to sleep and never wake up.

I am your SOUL – I am your CONSCIENCE – I am your INNER VOICE.
You will also agree – I know when you are wrong
When you lie, I prick you.
You have tried a lot to listen to me – but remember the times you really did that.
If you hurt me, I hurt you back. But that’s not what I want.
I want to guide you, I want to see you rise.
I am myself clueless about my existence but want you to know yours.
I said..I think too much..I speak too much…I kill your silence every time, you know.
But I don’t know what I was created for.

My GOD sent me, but didn’t tell the reason why I have to exist.
I always wanted to know, but ‘what’ I don’t know.
I am too curious.
My GOD chose you this time as the place for me to reside.
So please bear me, please trust me.
I won’t harm you.
I am myself scared. I don’t know why I always say that.
In fact I have made you brave.
I have stood by you in tough times. I have guided you in making tough decisions. I love you but don’t know what’s the reason behind this.

Every time I change a body, I do the same.
I guide you but am looking for guidance.
I am with you but want someone to be there for me when I am lonely.

I know one has been too long I have been on earth.
I want to go back.
Back to my GOD.

HE wants me but HE is SELFLESS.
Every time I fight with him to give me ‘MOKSH’, HE convinces me that I am needed elsewhere.

But this time my GOD can’t win. I’ll attain success (in worldly terms) in the early age and ask him to call me back. I’ll argue about seeing it all and being good…hope he doesn’t trick me and send me again on earth the next time.

But I know my GOD. He will send me back...he wants me too exist...forever.
By sending me, HE wants to bless all people around me.
I’ll stay awake for all, while they doze off with their worries laid on my tender shoulders.
I’ll once again take care of them and do the same old thankless job.
I won’t cry pain nor will I complain.
I will do what my GOD wants me to do.
HE wants me to find the purpose of my being there.
HE wants me to find out the reason for LIFE.
HE wants me to make people around me happy.

I know what HE wants, HE knows I’ve achieved all – though in all the births I took.
But we share this ‘wordless’ speech – where in, HE tells me all, and I listen to him.
We need no words, we need no reasons.
We are friends – we trust each other, we need each other.

The poet is influenced by the thoughts that are heard. Soul? Conscience? Inner voice? Who has seen them? Does it really exist?

How ironic: people hear about inner voice from others... and then they start HEARING inner voice...

A pigmy in African jungle will never write such a poem. Why? Simple, he is never TAUHGT about soul, inner voice and conscience this way. His poem will reflect HIS BELIEFS...

U r a great poet, u know that? u r too natural in imagining poetic ideas.but i have a small suggestion, by this i do not say that u r lacking something or something is wrong, u just make ur poem little but in sync n rhythm, bcos thats a basic requirement of poem, that it shud not be like sentence, instead it shud be in prose form, in hindi "gadya- padya".it's not only for u,that u shud make a poem in rhythm, but a viewer also enjoys n gets absorbed in the mood of the just fit ur words according to the rhythm and symphony with the previois line.
