Who Are You

if , iF , IF
problems of life and living,
slowly start swallowing
you up,
all your resouces
failing to stop
the tide of emptiness
overpowering you,
for God's sake
come out, come out
you are there.

embrace the openness,
the space upto the horizon and beyond,
the deep blue sky
high upto eternity,
gaze beyond them all,
soon you will be moving
among the stars, the planets
and the thousand suns,
out there
in the open, open sky
of the blue beyond,
a ray of light
from one of them
would have started
million of years ago
still it has not reached you,
still travelling, still coming
to meet you all,
how big, big this universe is,
how small, small,
miniscule you are,
billion times smaller
than the tiniest dust
under your feet,

you are nothing,
simply nothing
in the cosmic scheme oh things,

which are these problems
that bother you,
they are self-inflicted,
created by you
to add to your own

close your eyes
try to be part of
the surrounding universe.


the walls around you
will collapse.
