' Will 'I' Ever Be 'Me' '

i love this world, when the world loves me
i hate this world, when the world hates me
Proudly i claim i've all the freedom
But are my thoughts really free from this WORLDLY kingdom.

Ruled by His Royal Highness GREED
Fighting a neverending battle to SUCCEED
With an army of soldiers of the SELFISH regiment
Who always move ahead never to look back never to repent.

Now when i look back i see
Once i was a child boundless and free
Did what i really wanted to
Went ahead cheerfully, was all i would do.

'Today i've everything', i flaunt
But are these really the things i want
i am lost help me O' lord
i haven't done justice to me, i am a fraud

Whatever i do is nothing for me
All i do is only to achieve and for the world to please
i've buried myself my soul it seems i am a stone
i am mere flesh with no dreams of my own

'ME' from the mirror stares at 'i'
Asking when i would dropp the 'i'
'i' is what the world has made of you
'ME' is how God had sent you

Standing today in front of the mirror
i know not what to say what to answer
when,
i ask staring back at 'ME'
WILL 'I' EVER BE 'ME'? ? ?

Whatever i do is nothing for me All i do is only to achieve and for the world to please i've buried myself my soul it seems i am a stone i am mere flesh with no dreams of my ow very very good poem. the search for identity. living to please others will kill us. you are a unique being. your uniqueness you will lose when you live to please others. Be yourself always. be strong to stand on your own legs. thank you dear Poetess. God bless you
Believe me - This is just amazing would be an understatement... Coz you have pulled out something that is very true.. We all feel like this, Its just that we let go of that feeling and concentrate on the more mundane tasks.. Nevertheless, a really good write... Do keep writing... - Vinod
