Slippery Mind

by Venkat


this world outside
Earth, nature, wild
people, society, life
owned by no one

yet we so remain
sole owners of ways
we relate
we feel
we carry
the world upon us

divisions, conflicts
crimes, wars, bloodshed
a melancholic song
replayed across history

a helpless confusion ringing loud
between the world and its perception
what each owns in truth
slides off this slippery mind
