CALICUT, October 7, 2012 – Do we re-create ourselves for the art of survival at the cost of losing our antecedent selves? What do we resemble in this uncoordinated ensemble?
The self seeks doubt and hope of it enriches,
Seeks hope and bedeviling doubts of it arise,
The longitude changes and demons are created,
Pandering to the self-more and less than the self.
Consummating the rhythm hasn’t been this dusky,
I sit beneath the moon-lit sky, gazing, wondering,
If all of us had one true self- is our stimulus misplaced?
Or has the dynamics of the ‘system’ re-created us?
The stars gently illuminate my untrained thoughts,
Travelling light years to provoke my naive mind,
The ocean of bliss captivates with untouched beauty,
Star-struck, I connect dots between thought and action.
Time has created ‘self-less’ versions; enforcing ‘follow-ons’,
To do the best we can to eliminate the competition,
Falling from grace to better our genuine selves,
Alas, the competition does better and eliminates itself.
