State of mind

I want to be fully occupied
Stick to truth and never to underline
Yet such kind of mentality may always remain
Think of useless things and strain

“Idle mind is devil's work shop”
Think tank continues and never stops
Travels across world and comes back in time
Such is the case with mind's crime

Who can claim control over mind?
Many researchers have tried but failed to find
It is reserved slot but at no one's disposal
It may propose anything and lead to struggle

It may force us to venture
To scale the height and assure
No change in position for all times to come
Creation of palace straight from the slum

It may want us to shout on top of the roof
Show it to the world with glorious proof
Not to allow anybody to snatch by force
But stick to it with any kind of course

No one knows exactly its mechanism
Yet it is human mind linked with humanism
With error and terror it finds suitable place
Recognizes importance for making chase

It is loved and taken for granted
Shown for courage and wanted
Mind is mind and important part
How can we neglect and simply depart?
