Future?

What does the future look like?

Does it have a light of its own calling out to you like a beacon?

Is it full of embers straying away from a fire that you have to save from dying out?

Is there a torrent trying to blow out the light from a candle?

Are you looking for a matchstick that can light up the path?

Or, is there a darkness that seeks to swallow you whole?

Tomorrow is inevitable, it is looming on you,

Action has to be taken,

What do you do?

Do you follow a path that has been laid out for you?

Do you take the road less tread on?

Are you going to walk through the valley of the unknown?

Or, will you dig through the earth and create a new path for others to follow?

Thoughts 

Thoughts flee from the brain-

As I try to grasp at something that makes sense.

The brain which ought to produce these thoughts,

Fail me at this moment.

A dense cloud covers the nerves which carry the thoughts 

And the mind becomes a great abyss. 

Thoughts float in this abyss in a haphazard manner

And nothing makes sense.

Nothing comes to the surface.

And I try, but to no avail, 

To grasp at any random thought.

Any random one that can make sense of the things around me. 

But nothing surfaces from the mind.

The abyss which hold my thoughts, mirrors the world I live in,

The world, which I too, will leave at some point,

Just as thoughts have left the control centre of my body.

No one understands this world, 

We may try to.

But any questions answered-

Lead to more questions, 

Making it an unending circle of the unknown.

An unending circle of searching for a light in the dark abyss.

An unending circle of perpetually looking for more.

To Know

What the future holds, nobody knows. 

We live in a state of confusion, fearing the unknown.

Would it really be useful to know everything?

Would knowing everything that will happen to us-

A year from now,

Or, a month from now,

Or, a week from now,

Or, even a day from now help us in any way? 

Would it really benefit us to know what is going to transpire?

Or, would that just send us into a spiraling void,

Where the only thoughts we have is-

What is the point of it all?
People say “Ignorance is bliss”.

And in not knowing what the future holds,

It stands true. 

But not knowing right from wrong,

Not knowing how to tell the truth,

Not knowing how to admit we are wrong,

Not knowing the difference between good and bad,

Is not being ignorant,

It is a simple case of being human. Because, it is easier to do the wrong thing,

It is easier to lie,

It is easier be stubborn,

It is easier to choose between something easy, and someghing difficult.

When?

This confused state,

When will we be liberated?

This unknown predicamen

Of what to do next,

When will things be ascertained?

When will we know what to do?

When will things be clear as day?

When will we escape this gray

area?

When?
The answer, you ask?

I dont know. 

No one does. 

We just do what we think is right.

We just do what we feel is right.

We just do what we want. 

And what we want, 

Could lead to our ruin. 

So we do what we have to. 

Not knowing what comes next.

Though we all yearn to know.
