Lost and Found

DSC06904Zipping through my life I never realized

That I had lost myself, I was surprised

To discover that in running from one goal to next

I was meandering through mazes, perplexed

Where was the person that was supposed to be me?

Broken, scattered pieces of myself were all I could see

Floating in different directions, each pulled by

Different demands of the society, not knowing why

Unable to coalesce to give a form that was coherent

A form that could my life’s meaning represent….

I had lost myself inexorably, this was mere existence

Each fragment of me was separated by time and distance

The part of me left behind in school corridors


The part that I left behind on my country’s shores

The part that still lingers on the threshold

Of my childhood home, full of apologies untold..

I had been shattered into pieces infinitesimally small

I could try to put them together, or toss them all


Lost as I was completely, I had nothing to lose

I began to reinvent myself, became my own muse

In the midst of nowhere myself I had found

I would not lose myself this time around!
