Poem: Mind

By: Zunayet Ahammed

We can control our eyes
Our anger
Weaknesses over ladies
Sometimes the unpredictable bull
But can’t control our mind.

We can control our unbridled longing for money
Our ruthlessness and gluttony
Restiveness
Sometimes the seductive attitudes
But can’t control our mind.

We can control our instant liking and disliking
Jealousy
Appreciation for the TV superstars
Our quest for trash food
Sometimes the attempt for the undone
But can’t control our mind.

We can also control many more things
Even sometimes the current of the river
Only we can’t control our mind
The most mysterious thing
Indomitable
That nobody can resist.

Yet we always think of it
Nothingness!
