An Introspection - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

Into the dark recesses of my elusive mind
I tiptoed silently with candlelight;
To thoughtfully watch the curious mind
That proliferate thoughts, away from my sight.

I would like to discover ‘who I am’
The ‘who’ the ‘I’, the stranger lurking in me,
Get introduced to him as well as I can
Advice ‘him’ in the light of the vision that I see.

The real ‘I’ in ‘me’ is a reclusive being
Elusive, evasive and always self-justifying
I caught a glimpse of him prancing and fleeing
Into the dark wilderness where he lives in hiding!

    What a paradox..... We are strangers to ourselves! The real 'I' in me is always hiding! How 'I' appear outside is only a fake and the' I' here is only my shadow! The last stanza is an icing on the cake! Enjoyed much! (Report) Reply
