The mad chase

Frantic  feet shuffle to and fro
Cars and buses zoom across the street
Its yet another busy day
In the concrete jungle

For some its the rush to work
For another a rush to to catch the flight
An opening ceremony to address
A closing down sale that cannot be missed

A woman with labour pain screams
An ambulance siren  cries for attention
A wedding to attend here, a birthday party there
People scamper  in all directions

Our cravings multiply day by day
No control to our indulgence
You have everything you need
Yet there is a void so deep

Where is your destination, O mind!
Thoughts keep shuffling like a pack of cards
Have you found what you seek
Is it glory, love, success or revenge?

The world outside is just an illusion
Senses chasing objects of desire
Turn back from this mad chase
What you seek is within you
