When I was planning

He was laughing

He who owns everything

He who knows everything

Yet I never stopped

Plans that flopped

I still kept making

Is there a fault in my making!!

I asked Him out loud

To clear the thick cloud

That had layered my vision

That affected every decision

That I once made with precision

And suddenly I heard

Laughter so loud

Totally abstruse and unheard

Ending into a complete silence

Increasing the cabalistic suspense

I waited, baffled and puzzled

Trying to unravel

This enigmatic instance

The surety of its existence

And there it was again

Loud and clear

A voice without fear

“Nothing can be planned

And yet we do it!!

It is never in our hand

And yet we do it!!”

Sometimes it works

Sometimes we fail

Because we are humans

Cemented and stuck

Between the heart and the brain

Was my brain talking?

Or my heart mocking

I still keep pondering!!

I still fail to interpret!!
