Shahzia Batool (Pakistan)
My Scattered Thoughts ii
i experience daily growth, daily change
some addition, some subtraction,
some division of spirit, multiplication of all my selves
some positive, some otherwise
(negative is a harsh word but is there any harm in admitting it?)
but it keeps me going...this change, this growth
what i was, i am not, somebody said,
what i am, i shall not be
but one regret will be there,
i shall lose the essential Me, i love the most, yet i'm not a narcissist
the world is a great teacher,
though the world is a bad teacher...
