A Conflicted Mind

You leave your homeland, then come back and see

Everything in a different light inexorably

The good and the bad, in sharp relief outlined

The picture quite different from what you had in mind

Some ordinary things quaint and endearing appear

While other things are too irritating to bear

The more you see, the more conflicted you feel

What does your perception of your homeland about you reveal?

When you see things positively, you fear being delusional

When your perceive things negatively, it is a message subliminal

That you have lost allegiance to your birthplace

You belong elsewhere, that is the bitter truth you must face


Let me end by saying that no matter what my mind tells me

My heart looks at India benevolently
