Got Myself!

Poetry

A poem with illustration by Radhika.

rose

YOU GOT MIND?
NO! GOT MYSELF!

I thought countless thoughts
To not feel lonely
To be prepared
Why? I was taught so

I looked at others
To see them as others
To compare
Why? I was told so

I tried to put up a stance
An image and appearance
Like a wall around myself
Why? I was asked to

Then my master appeared
On the stage of life
Gleaming like the brightest sun
Thus burning it all away

Then my master said
He said and said
And also said
Thus wiping it all away

Then my master smiled
He danced and laughed
And tricked and joked
Thus chuckling it all away

Then my master said
Try jumping and howling
Try whirlwind dancing
Try shaking and flowing
And falling to my feet

And when I just typed all this
The word suggested next was
Dangerous
Yes, for the human mind
But not myself
