Myself


I need a time to watch
Myself from a distance;
To know who do I belong to;
Whether my name is genuine
And my end is marked
Below the root of tamarind tree-
My mother had planted
When she attained her puberty;
I need to watch from afar
The solubility of pure soul
When in the dank nights
The bugs treaded the veins
And left the marks to say
The end is not far from end.

A profound thought expressed in short limited lines! ! Thanks for the beautiful comment! ! (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
