When I look in the water in a puddle
I see myself
Covered with mud and dirt.
When i look in a mirror
I find myself
Glowing with joy and pride.
When I peep inside my heart
When I sink into my thoughts
I find the real me.
When I try to hide
The sun shines on me bright.
Me is more than the me you see
Or what you think of me.
Let me be me only me.
Meaning of ME
This poem was published in the English magazine “Indology”
Dearer to me than my silk or denim
Fits me warm with a delightful look
Than I wear in red , green or rare shades
Words that drip from my pen , the meaning of me.
World that glitters, my jewels precious
Stones that shine , pearls so pure
Defines me not but , the lines I spill on paper
Suits me as beads and bangles.
Nothing is more lovely than my curls
Breeze tosses them on my face, black and soft
My smile cannot be covered by my locks
As my poems express each emotion I feel.
So much more I want to say, my verses
Reflect my heart, my thought , what I am.
