The Me In Myself

There's a Me that whispers
Down the mind lobby
Perhaps its another
Staging such skillful tricks
Wherefore the heart shudders
Embraced in its fright
The Me or Another?
Breaks even the eyes
Tearing streams of empathy
Mind shackled in self pity
Wallowing what could've been
Save I relish living
Kissing the earth
The air embracing
Loving each moments
Life dares extend...
Me or another?
Why the rains?
Why the shines?
Why the comfort pain
And the broken smiles?
Seek Me yesterday
She bears much witness...
Past be the step towards today
Mourning her deprives much gain
Fret not for morrow
Reap the joys of the day
I will to bask in its sun
I hope to dance in its rains
The Me or another?
The Me in Myself!
