No One Ever Sleeps
No one ever sleeps,
by Ravinder Kumar Soni
At all times some part or the other
To excite, inspire and monitor;
When the heart continues to beat,
Breathing and absorption does not cease
And memories give rise to hopeful dreams.
The mind does not sleep,
The mind never rests its functions;
As the observer and the observed
It arouses, awakens and also attends.
At two different levels
It decides the course of thought
What to examine and act upon;
It sets goals and regulates emotions,
And closely reveals the implicit.
There is no escape from the mind
That if left alone loses itself.
