Being together & alone in this reality so hybrid
Mind seems noisy but heart is simply so silent
Calmness on the face in this phase too vibrant
The outside is shining while I sit in the darkness
The feeling to play the russian roulette
Those spinning chambers with single bullet
The clicking sound triggers the duet
The piercing thought tatters the fluid
The walls of this place are brightened with smoke grey
The floor of this stage has a form of deep grave
The light in this scene is glowing with high frequency
Eyes seem intense in this mind blowing game
The conscious steps are slowly revealing the unknown track
To love this magical life & to embrace the zenful pain
They both have special place in this beautiful spatial space
The path to wisdom through realizations, learnings & experiences
It was no one but me sitting in the chamber to penetrate

The last line blew me away dear Navin (as it was supposed to:) I love how you take us from dark thinking to bright realization. It’s so inspiring and really hits the reader like a projectile.
The whole metaphor of this poem, the title, is brilliance.

“The conscious steps are slowly revealing the unknown track

I appreciate the polarities that you bring together so beautifully – and these 2 lines absolutely shoen bright for me, they felt so exquisitely worded! The idea of taking conscious steps and that they actually lead to the unknown – it just felt refreshing to be reminded like that. Zenful pain- oh how i love this, how I feel the truth in it, how sheer magical life becomes exactly because of this!
