REST

My body takes rest,

but my mind never.

It always thinks about action-

tusk will never get finished

though life will end one day.

It tells, “After the death of body

I’ll take rest.”

Listening to this my body becomes restless

and moves towards the field.

No doubt rest is needed for refreshment,

but until and unless the work is done

it seems to be a mere wastage of time.

My mind has a tendency to not want to shut off.

I guess I think all the time, even when I rest.

Nice one.

A 'workaholic? Take rest when you can, especially with an over-active mind. Yet that does not sound like you, does it? Om Shanti!
