Treasure Island

Kavitha Krishnamurthy

(09 Jan / Chennai)

Who am I really?


The girl outside, ever smiling
With a carefree mind and a spirited heart
So much poised, so much matured
Always ready for new challenges
Enjoys life very much

The girl inside totally opposite
Cries within, gets dejected often
In need of inspiration, always doubtful
Will she succeed? What turn would life take?
Is always full of thousand questions with no answer

I keep wearing masks of these two girls
I prefer the outside girl
But the inside girl takes charge sometimes
In this battle of these two girls
I do not know which is the real me
Who am I really?

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
