My Selfie Poem by Yasmin Khan

My Selfie

Rating: 4.8


My Selfie

I write my selfie in quite truthful words
I think taking it only with a cam is absurd
As it captures only our outwardness
And is not concerned with inner sweetness

I'm a sensitive soul and pick vibes in a flash
I like candidness but avoid being a brash
To the utmost I love honesty and integrity
I hold no grudges, forget and forgive readily

Love and care of my dear ones is akin to jewels
I value it most and remain calm and cool
I believe in inner beauty that shines through the eyes
Straightforwardness impresses me, I hate guise

I'm a patriot and love my country sincerely
Friends are my asset, a buttress, a fence to me
I follow customs embedded in ethos and honesty
Bound by the bond of love yet like to act freely

Nature and poetry enchant and fascinate me
Putting me in a trance, transfer me wholly
Books are my haven, my collection is my treasury
Faith and prayers support me in all misery

Hence, it's a glimpse, a peep into myself briefly
‘Cause it's hard to portray a personage completely
As human hearts are far deeper than the sea
But at least more genuine than a photo selfie

The title adds a touch of currency to the poem, what used to be taken as a pen-portrait has become selfie, being the android term. Strong and meaningful rhymes, and a well-knit composition...After reading this, the expression comes from the heart is Nice to meet you, Yasmeen. Good job! :)

Hi Yasmeen, long time no see, after two years I've started writing again. I love your poem, a selfie in words is much better than a photo
