I, Me And Myself


“Who am I?” I ask myself seriously.
The sands of time show a pretty reflection.
What others see isn’t the complete me...
There’s so much more than first-impression.

They can’t read my thoughts nor see my inner-beauty.
Advertisements about me don’t find expression…
The judges’ evaluation of me is far from reality!
As I’m misjudged, I can’t allow myself the transgression!  

I do unto others as I’d have them do unto me.
I’m wise, nice with sophistication despite their allegation!
I have tread many miles of journey with myself for company.
I’ll continue with confidence- sincere participation in every exploration!

  13. Profound take on the prompt. The fallacy of human life when we are judged based on hear say and it's sad.

  22. So thought provoking Anita and beautifully written.
    When I was young I would often wonder who I was but now that I'm older
    and, I have to say, wiser, I am quite comfortable in my own skin and indeed,
    do try to treat others as I would wish to be treated.
    Good post.

    Best wishes,
    Di.x

    1. Sometimes yes & sometimes no, Cifar.
      We do have to think of others.
      May others not think wrongly of us, just basing their views on our appearance/material assets...

  30. I think this is in many ways a universal poem. Who of us is really known by anyone?

    1. Very true, Brian.
      Those who cannot truly see us, can't see what we are doing for them as well! People can be blind to our goodness...
      Thanks a lot for sharing your valid point.

  35. Anita,

    I think it is both good and wise to reserve a piece of ourselves, as an inner character. It defines us from others! A very characterful poem..

    Sorry for the lateness of my visit to comment,
    Eileen

    1. Thanks for your wise words, Eileen!
      You are right. No one knows that piece of us- our inner character...
      That's why we are the one who know ourselves the best! Just because others don't know us, they can't accuse us!
      Delighted to hear from you. Lateness doesn't matter! Intention & comment does!
