Treasure Island

Sunny Chopra

(30th January / India)

Peace with Self


Searching in state futility
for favorable drift of gust

Waiting for an apt moment
to trim sails for final thrust

Weathered many a past gale
now to placidity must align

Get rid of vain probabilities
and to harsh realism resign

All expectancy disconnected
disappointment amputates

Acceptance acts as panacea
feel good truly accentuates

Challenge takes back seat
introspection turns prime

One with unison of own self
to find tranquility sublime

In blissful pool of immunity
glee and pathos don't blend

Beyond the simple nuances
existence one doesn't defend

No hostility gets nurtured
or pointed fingers of blame

Rues, angst and penitence
not anymore then inflame
