I am the One

This poem is inspired by the beautiful poetry and stirring the soul, penned by the brilliant actor Shefali Shah on her amazing blog, I hold the right not to let it go.


I am the One,

average joe,

unsung hero,

I lack the spine and charm,

hiding vulnerabilities,

alive but lost to the crowd,

battling struggles and anxiety,

I am the soul,

collecting tiny shreds,

a child inside,

hiding the tears,

scared of the world,

I exist! Yes!

sacrificing dreams,

suppressing hope and aspirations,

million thoughts hidden,

building sandcastles,

wiping them all,

wanna meet the child in me,

I long for the pretty girl,

she may ignore my existence,

I am earth,

a tiny speck in the seas and oceans.




Work-in-progress, seeker and bundle of contradictions. Stubborn and Refusal to grow up and constantly in search of myself, I blurt it out on my space. Drop in and share some love. Indian by choice.
