Roaring ferociously  the king of forest in the silent night, when the world sleeps and rests,

leaves tremble,shivers the wind,peace shook by the terror of the burning blink.

Noiseless steps moves forth and leaps, clasping the mind infinitely free

mesmerized the little lamb weak, by hypnotism cunningly.

Darkness prevails through the woods ,flora and fauna slumbers like mute,

Walking amidst the sleeping woods, the poor lamb hexed in misfortune.

A prey tonight, celebrates the king,the mighty ruler of power,

His eyes shine with arrogance and haughtiness, as if  won an important battle,

 Terrifying the weak again succeeds , the persisting rule of destiny,

Unless the modest stands with courage, fights the witching look with brazenness,

History shall repeat itself ,the meek will always  follow the swayer to the den…

What do you think! Does power rule our mind and destiny?

    Only the power of desire.

      Apt and cleverly stated ! It does overrule every other power!

    Hello Soumyav,

    I am a big fan of the cat family, especially the big cats in the wild. They rule, they make other cower away in fear. Your poem depicts this power they possess. In life, I think we are affected by this same influence, whether directly or not.

    A lovely piece.

      Hi Uzo,
      Truly stated ,we do fear the existence of such power in real life too.whether we fear the tigers ,or we fear the people in power. The exhibition of power of someone else dominates us, but there’s another facade to it. We all do have a kind of power within which can rule our mind and destiny ,if we allow it to guide… and not get lead away by the hypnosis of the scary cats! 😀

    Thought provoking piece! In the jungle it is the circle of life, In humanity it is a sadness that comes from ill thoughts in those that perpetrate. Namaste, mary

    Our mind should be in control of power, instead of the power control our mind 😀

    Power of the mind overrules all principles underlying power to coerce and exploit.

    • soumyav May 4, 2013 / 1:08 am

      Yes this power of mind can execute and overrule anything.

    Good Post.
    Destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads on.

    • soumyav May 5, 2013 / 2:05 pm

      🙂 very rightly said!
