How come we miss the Obvious
How come the one Changeless factor in our life
escapes our attention?
Absorbed by small life concerns and demands
we are glued to the everchanging appearances.
One after the other
As on a tread mill.
Willing mice running all their lives
round and round.
It is often when some obstacle happens to our
daily rounds and routines,
Some upheaval, or accident,
a break up
sickness and death
that we are stopped in our tracks.
The treadmill slows down,
the rat race is questioned.
Do you dare jump of the wheel?
Willing to disappear to all you have known?
Disappear all together?
