Finding myself

Have you seen me?

I look for myself in the anonymous dark lanes, fearing to find out what would be me. Deep down in my heart I know myself and believe I deserve to soak in blinding lights of fame, recognition and applause.

Will I find myself at the end of the lane?

My quest to meet myself is hindered by the countless number of ‘others’ in whom I see a part of myself. The way they look at me colours my mind and I take a detour. It feels like I’m stuck in a maze.

Can you tell me the way out?

I have come a long way and yet have miles to go. I need a friend who’d lend me an encouraging hand. I need a guide who’d help me read the map. I need a companion who’ll make the journey a happy dance.

Will you come along?

    1. Red, maybe it's a natural thing but the beauty lies in not succumbing to the reflection?

  8. I believe that we keep searching for self and as we feel we've reached self, the journey gets harder as it eludes us. Loove it. That's why I love The Alchemist which is so true bout our path of self discovery:)
