" I " in Me


Sometimes I am hurt and scared
Then I get up to fight with my fate

It is un natural what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me

What comes to me
That wants to save I in me

Unaware of my mighty side
How did I cross so many strides

It is un natural what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me

I was scared of loosing
Then I realized I was only drowsing

I never met what I met with so much courage
Yet what I met was without any age

Unfettered , un-weathered what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me

Stillness and shine
Love is all mine
That too without a single dime

It is un-natural what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me

Sometimes there seems no way 
no roads no maps served on tray

Sometimes I feel almost lost
Then I get up to be my own host

With fractures of past
And loneliness of present
It pulls me out to the panorama of future

It is un natural what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me

Solitude breaks the best bone in heart
But it never made me feel wreaked apart

Flack burnt me in fire
But it saved me from every dire

It is un-natural what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me

If I could once find I in me
I would stop and ask "What makes you love me"
But I know its answer it would be "I find my I in me"

It is un-natural what dawns into me
But I am sure it is I in me


Love
Shreya

Pardon me if it has grammatical errors it just came in a flow and so i wrote it.

Hi Shreya,
I am glad you decided not to fuss over grammar, or try to polish it after writing; sometimes it is better to let the reader witness what it was that was expressing through you, rather than trying to impose filters after the moment has come and gone.
In a way, the poem strikes me as a re-discovery of the sense of wonder, of marveling, at a universe in which each soul has both the perception of being alone and separate, yet also the knowledge that beyond the veil of time and the senses, only Self abides. You express the cycle of forgetting and remembering this in a way that is human, yet still pointing to hope and clarity.
Thank you for sharing!

RESPECTED SHREYA JI, THOUGHTFUL POEM. I LIKED - "WHAT MAKES YOU LOVE ME" AND THE ANSWER -"I FIND MY I IN ME". POEM ENDS IN A SPIRITUAL NOTE. I COULD NOT GET THE MEANINING OF SOME LINES. CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THE ESSENCE OF THE POEM ?

SHREYA JI, YOU ARE POET ALSO. THIS IS THE FIRST POEM OF YOURS I HAVE READ. HAVE YOU MANY MORE, WHERE ARE THEY.

Hi James,
You are right i just did not fuss over the grammar because when i write poems i try to hold my feelings and let them flow . I feel any reader like me would concentrate on the free flow of feelings than grammar. But yes there are poets who have lovely grammar and poetic skills at the same time which is definitely a blessing. I ain't got that. :)

Well you have understood the gist of the poem it really is about a little awe at who is saving me and providing me the strength to live again and again. It is something separate from me and yet within me. Call it soul. spirit or strength I know it loves me. At least one person who loves me and wants to save me from any harm at any cost is a strong force inside me. :)

Happy to call you by your name now James.
Thanks for your lovely comment.

Hello Sathya ji,

Nice to see your comment here. Yes the poem definitely ends at a spiritual note because in the whole poem I kept on hinting at a super poer that lies beneath my surface. I mean it is like a set of qualities of love, strength and positiveness that holds its ground strongly inside me and holds me every time I fall.
You may call it soul , universal spirit or even God.It depends on interpretation but to me it is inducible feeling inside me.

It is separate from me in the sense that in my mundane life I am not even aware of these strengths but I own them and have seen and witnessed them at many occasions. It is ageless, un bounded by chains free, shines brightly , love filled and mighty strong. It is no one else but me.

If you still want to understand any specific lines I'll be very happy to help.
Also yes i do write poems but not very frequently. If you want to read other poems of mine.

Lovely poem!

Yes, if it was not for Him who is within me, i wouldn't have been what i am today! My heart overflows with gratitude for the inimitable strength which has been there to face the challenges of life. I am humbled to say "Give me a grateful heart, not a grumbling heart"

Congratulations on the new look of the blog!

Love you dear,

Shreya said...

Hi Ajit ,
Nice to see you on my blog. Your comments are also as your tweets are short but true :)
I cannot disagree with your point i'll just add a few words more " no 1 can luv u more thn u can....n to live happily u must understand Who that U is "

That is just my feeling, a clear understanding helps more than just understanding :)

Oh btw i am not leaving twitter but its odd 140 words too short for me :P lol :)
I just am unable to frame half as good tweets as you do. So i simply discuss what you post. That way i am available at twitter. :)

Adios
Tkcr and thanks again for your comment :)
