I Am A Thought - Poem by Sachin Pushkarna

i was thought of a long time ago,
all along with many seeds that were sown

I never had a name, nor identity any
in an instant, that one became too many

the body, the traits, the looks were put in place,
and all that i would do, all that i would face

while in the beginning i knew from where i sprang
but amidst confusion, i forgot who i am?

the thoughts kept moving and i lived all for gains
and kept succumbing to the different kinds of pains

limited, yet unlimited, the thought in itself started to think
and for generations embodied all in an instant wink

forever ignorant, thoughts turned to perpetual wants
performing actions, with emotions riding the horns

shining in this illusory world with pleasure and pain well defined
I realized, seeking them is a waste of time

Willingly, the thinking itself sunk in the thought
lucidly revealing all i am not! ! ! !

when the mind itself ceases to exist
i am a thought that disappears in the mist

Poet's Notes about The Poem

How evolution came into being, and how my true identity is revealed
