*a SMALL ' I ' and a big ' me'
I have these two in me
a SMALL 'I' and a big 'me'
they both co-exist in me
The SMALL 'I' is a pampered species
the big 'me' we may think is an endangered species
the SMALL endangers the big...we may think so..though
the big is a humble fellow...
he would never ever go
he is a different kind of fellow
The SMALL ' I' has a lover..dear FEAR
she would never let anybody near...
not even the big buddy for sure
she creates a sphere for the SMALL' I' to retire
the small fellow will operate only from here
the SMALL 'I' needs it all for dear
assurance..security..and all for sure
A day would come when she would be seen..
in her true colour
A day would come when the SMALL 'I' would
see the true picture
A day will come when 'LOVE' totally takes over
That day when
the small 'i' and the BIG 'ME'....
will start to live up to their name
