Bits and Pieces

Thoughts, like crumbs, strewn here and there, after devouring the portions with an unknown hunger

Thinking of wasting nothing, like precious bread, but an unwanted hurry, to take away something extra

Even if it does not agree with the system, making the consciousness lethargic, emanating tiresome energies

Weakening the being, the cosmic structure, feeble frames weild a war with overburdened thoughts, an insatiable desire, a debilitating hunger

Those crumbs accumulate everyday, bits and pieces of wisdom rot in heaps, but thoughts are scarce still, only unnatural and without any culture

Wrung the important portions out, till they become fibrous and filling, but do not sustain any natural thought; losing the meaning of existence, in bits and pieces
