*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

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
