The kingdom of ‘curiosity’ invites you,
For an exploration of uncertain duration,
At an age when interest presides over rationalism,
An enticement of your conscience in a ‘terra incognita’.
(Or rather a world unknown.)
A world where ignorance is a boon,
As well as a requisite,
To relish abysmal amusements.
You begin in incognito
With no bag and baggage,
In a boat, built of thoughts and actions,
A paradigmatic mean of transport,
For discoverers en-route ‘Curiosity’.
Your boat gets moored,
By the banks of river ‘fantasy’.
The river assuring you,
A flux of freedom’s free flow.
The adjacent island will render you plots-
Of obscure delicacies,
Which you are entitled by fate, to discover.
Here you shall find the ideal space,
To revel and prosper,
To cultivate an intricate base,
Of inner self’s thirst for philosophy.
You begin your expedition in this kingdom,
Hoping to encounter fertile lands,
And to confiscate them to your mind’s advantage.
Obscurity, is the fertile land,
Where dauntless discretion roots itself,
Deep, beyond the core of reasoning.
Also, there are the ‘other lands’!
The realms which were once appalled by you,
Hitherto, for their eeriness,
Exposed through exanimate yet dreaded scarecrows,
Rumours of primeval origin,
Of a direful land of fatal illusions.
But a liberal approach guides you in-
Conquering these barren lands,
(Where an encroachment of fear-
By conscience and wisdom occurs)
Where the birth of your new self occurs,
Where the disgorged placenta of
Daunting memories and superstitions,
Embraces the soil and-
Conveys the secret of fertility to it,
Before its death.
Your empire thus expands,
Your fields of discoveries,
Opulently covered by a foliage of-
proliferating crops-deep rooted ideals and ratiocinations.
Turn out to be an invincible emperor,
The supreme commander of your subjects-thoughts and actions.
Where the flesh defers to the mind’s urge,
Paving the path to insouciance,
(A state of unfathomable freedom in thoughts and actions,)
Fills you with a new substance-knowledge,
And with gratification of a productive expedition.
You’ll reign this kingdom
Until thy audaciousness fail to meet,
The intended explanandum –
For obscure plots and random thoughts.
This land will indeed,
Cater thee with new dimensions.
