Raj Arumugam

A History Of The Self - Poem by Raj Arumugam

you came out
and you settled in the confines
and they gave you an identity
and a context,
an operating platform
and you saw the world
and you wanted to make meaning
and you wondered
what the hell is going on here -
and what did you do?

you took a belief
a Book, a Leader
a system
and you cling to it
for dear life
for eternity, you think

or did they do it to you?
