You, me and the rest of the jing bang.

16 Jun

There lies your fabric of fear

And here lies mine.

Strange isn’t it…they both appear

To have just the same design!

The dull rhythm in your breast

The knots that tigher grow

The smile that has lost its zest

Have reflections in me,I know.

You there, beyond the seas

And you on the mountain high

You, where the white snows freeze

Let’s compare our sighs.

We spin our inner skies

With the same warp and weft

And foolishly surmise ,our outer disguise

Our innate sameness, will arrest.

    the same sky, the same earth; the same highs and the same lows – so simple, and yet to realize this much, one has to go through so much! nadiraji, your poem is touching mystic heights!

    Well said Eka, and beautifully put. Under our skins of colour and nationality, gender and caste, we are all the same, the same forces pull us in all directions and the same forces lift us or take us down.

    Nadira, what truth your poem holds. We are no different, are we? We all want to Love and be Loved. All the outer stuff helps us work a little harder to find the real stuff and have a better idea of who we truly are.
