Inner Laziness Of the Mind 2013

Inner Laziness Of The Mind

I blame myself: tamasic, slothful

In the subtlest, most deceitful ways,

Secret ways,

Hard to describe

And sneaky too;

The slight unwillingness to move;

The small decision not to do.

Postponement; working ‘gainst improvement;

Expertise, technique and not


What it means to be a being

In control;


Who can explain

The nook

Inside our brain,

As if it all

Were nonsensical?
