Speed

One way or the other
I'm going to come after you; no matter
how high you set the barricade — you can not
stop me from infiltrating; I'm the unstoppable
force, the human tornado that will clash
upon your beach like a tidal wave;
and then, I shall retract myself
again into the depths of the ocean...

You can not stop me
from entering your premises; because
I'm as expansive as the sky: I shall always be there
hovering over you, like a ghost, and even when
you're eating or defecating — you will not be
able to trick my all~seeing eyes:

I'm birthless, I'm deathless;
I'm the primordial force that wants
to love, and be loved;

I've been infected by you, and now I carry the
disease of your human civilization: the faces
of London or Lebanon, everywhere
you've treated me like a stray dog: I'm
now resolute to break the veils of your walls
and destroy you by imploding your
disease within your own self.

I'm the sibling of the Creator BRAHMA;
I'm the sister of the mighty Kaala (Time
itself); I create wealth as the tree creates
flowers; I have everything; —yet I need
you because you're like an engine
that runs on the fuel of love: I'm
love~incarnate. Because
I'm woman.
And the thing
that attracts me towards you: is speed.

Thank you, Vidya ji. I checked your profile. You have some beautiful hubs. Here is one of your works that I found very striking, I hope you wouldn't mind me quoting from your work here:

.

.

"The ten different manifestations of divine energy are as follows:

Day 2-Brahmacharini- Means one who practices severe austerities. She is blissful and endows us with happiness, peace, prosperity, and grace. She paves the way to emancipation or moksha by the recognition of our true nature that is infinity."
