Like to go around the world
and see places in a whirl.
It is all in the heart
lying safely in the locker
unable to open the wish
as unknown fear creeps in.
The reason for keeping away is not one
as many crowd the mind in a throng
desisting the heart to stay away.
Mostly the heart reigns supreme
but in this the mind has taken the power.
The fear of travelling for hours and days.
The thought of sitting upright for long duration
with the joints especially the knees would go off the track.
The idea of staying away from home detains and restricts
along with the homely food and comfort which crop up
making the decision awry and remote.
However much the mind reasons out and suppresses the desire
the heart peeps out on and off with the same notation.
Chiding the mind stares at the heart with a stern
putting an end to the topic with a firm undaunted quote.
With that the man goes ahead with his work attending quietly
You might conclude that there ends the dilemma.
The oscillation gets to the quick and to a prick
when anyone goes on a world tour the longing shoots up .
As days go by the thought gains strength and vigour
reinforced by the rapport others give
requiring a fresh approach and appeal in the go.
The mind stays silent accepting its failure to convince
letting the heart to go about its way without any say.
As the heart has got its way it started preparing for the trip
making arrangements fulfilling all other formalities.
With the suspense mounting you would come up with a question
whether the programs worked out as per the schedule.
Nay, the heart had a dull pain and suffered a massive myocardial infraction.
