Life always gives you a checkmate

Somehow, most of us manage our life badly.
When you have to accomplish conflict resolution, problem fixing, or decision making in wavering circumstances, you need to not only consider the logical aspects but also humane and well-being of a specific person or the society. Most situations force you to think too much to be able to weigh all the pros and cons before concluding to a final point. And you end up feeling that your brain is over working than even the most hi-tech machine in this world.

I had read somewhere that our limbic system of the brain gets confused when it receive intense stimulus coming from our aspirations. The insecurity towards fulfilling the aspirations makes you feel vulnerable to them and you feel like you are no longer in control of your emotions. You begin to feel like Life has put you on back foot. Yeah! I believe this is one of the ways the Universe reminds us, that we are too tiny.

Life is known to throw situations at us and then awaits a response from us. I believe that when a character is powerful, there exists the courage to make the right choices. And I see that, "that something" is a side of you that has made a choice, the best it can. A willingness to face life, with courage and not by giving up. And in every such time, the way of thinking gradually becomes honest. And when the thinking is honest, you move to a new level of cognizance, a new paradigm and a new faith.

Although things may seem like a wrong, but for once in your life you can trust your instincts and manoeuvre away from what you once viewed as your “intended path” to explore new ventures. Perhaps, some ‘Coincidences’ that occur in your life could be anonymous gifts from Mother Nature & we must not ignore them. Probably they are a lead to your sovereignty.

Nevertheless, we think we know and understand Life, but Life always gives you a checkmate!

...And chirps my tickled brain.

Things are getting entangled, like a bunch of grey hair;
A tired me seeking for ways, resting in this armchair.

I cant believe within, the presence of an empty mind;
Constantly recycling, those crowded thoughts of every kind.

For what I miss often, is captured in my every heartbeat;
The love that forms me, restores my being and paces its heat.

I think its time for questions, let me introspect within;
I wish to know, what and how time has to bring in.

A sudden numb silence, is taking place of my speech,
For things once sought, are now seen out of reach.

With you around, I begin to bloom, I begin to beam;
But the noises in my head tell me, you're losing all the steam.

I wish a serene intimacy and everything in it, that does matter;
I wish I was in your arms, as your fingers allow my hair to scatter. 

As I pen this poem, looking outside in the rain;
My forehead feels that kiss, and chirps my tickled brain.
