A Conversation with Myself
Written by Shreya Karande
If I have ever been in pain,
It’s my heart that gets frozen again.
And I know, that’s what I fear,
In front of me a dark mist appears.
But suddenly while thinking about it,
A peculiar way I got acquit.
And then I realise a shadow standing behind me,
A dark one with huge strange eyes to see.
But for the first time in the shadow even though dark, I found the serenity of white,
A dream that held me benight.
Then I heard a voice saying “you have no right to disturb my integrity”,
I held on too hard to know this voice.
And Alas! I found the real mystery,
Which was hidden in a mutiny.
It was my soul that held me tight,
And thence I overcame the toughest night.
My soul taught me how to be peaceful, and yet say a lot, and therefore I feel my worries are all sought.
I now know the integrity of my soul,
A pleasant memory to be remembered and not the one which was foul.
