Liberation Of Mind

Poem By Janaki Nilmini

Freedom; liberation of mind

Our perceptions of people and world
Often adulterated or skewed,
So we see things in our own way.
Upbringing, Beliefs and values
Assumptions and stereotypes
Emotional and intellectual biases
Cloud our subjective minds

If pause, reflect and evaluate
The way our minds operate
And think who we really are
Insight is not that far
We can change the way we see
Insight is the turning key
Eliminating ignorance and delusion
Ruminating impermanence and illusion
Mindfulness bring liberation
That is the freedom for celebration.

Indeed, true freedom comes with liberation of the mind. An insightful piece of poetry elegantly embellished with poetic rhyme and rhythm. A work of art. Thanks for sharing Janaki and do remain enriched.

From this hotel window
I saw them dragged you away
Cheering and clapping
Proud of their catch

Of people, concepts and world
Are adulterated or skewed
So we see things

After the grande finale
Resting like dormant
Stage is empty
But, is it?

On Myway To School

I din't travel by bus to school
Neither did my mother driveme there
With my friends and cousins
I had the best of childhood fun

Mind

Be it, pauper or king
Mind is the very thing
Through which we live,
Most mysterious and elusive.
