Finding Myself - Poem by Akshaya Pawasker

Am I one person?
Or existing in duality,
like two sides of a coin,
expressed, suppressed,
born with it, made up
Id, superego, alter ego
morphed, masqueraded.
A finished product
from the mill of this world.
Lost in the maze of
truth and lies.
Seeking former,
finding myself.

    Still, the type of duality within your entity can be moderately subdued if you go on trying to reinvent yourself from time to time. A short poem with enough poetic matter to brood over, Akshaya. (Report) Reply

    You have founded yourself in this very great write. Some of us masquerade in
    in a variety of fashions so that no one will know our true identity. When we do this
    we are merely fooling ourselves not realizing whether we are coming or going.
    Be one and be yourself and let your light shine which you are doing right now.
    A beautiful write. (Report) Reply

    Every coin has two sides like our life. The one we present to others and other is hidden in out depth, which no one can see. You have portrayed very beautifully. Loved it. (Report) Reply

    beautiful oxymoronic exhortations...
    exulting in the diversity that is Goa itself....

    solidly Indian yet as unindian as it gets...
    lovely write...has a deeper dimension too

    A wonderful poem my friend! But I'm sure not only you having this out. All of us have two faces. One real, who we are and one plastic face to mingle with others! I give you 9 (Report) Reply
