The Trouble Maker

Sometimes evil
Sometimes holy
Sometimes restless
Sometimes calm
Sometimes sad
Sometimes happy
Sometimes friend
Sometimes enemy
Sometimes servant
Sometimes master
You...
My troublesome mind!
....................................................................................................
The inspiration for the poem style was Venus. Thank you Venus.
The inspiration for the art (I dare to call it so!) was the poem. Drawn by Myself :)

Hi Mani :)

I am amazed at your creativity and talent.

The picture you have drawn is breathtaking and explains beautifully what you have portrayed in simple smart carefully selected words.

The message you have comveyed is deeper than what you have written. It is true mind has different facets both good and bad. But the true meaning of your apparently simple words contain great wisdom.

Yes. Your words tell me very clearly:

CONTROL YOUR MIND
AND YOU CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS.
CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOU CONTROL YOUR ACTIONS.
CONTROL YOUR ACTIONS,YOU CONTROL YOUR DESTINY.

WOW!

Many,many thanks for your drawing and words of inspiration.

Have a wonderful day full of joy and happiness :)
