me and myself doing my own
separate from all the others, unassisted,
a stag, unescorted individual, an introvert

i know how independent i could be
doing my own thing whenever i want
’cause i know myself best than anyone else

alone by myself in a crowd of thinkers
searching and exploring just myself
will only seat me in the company of my shadow

getting lost in a gang of thousands
still i always get back home to the BEING i love
ALONE by myself, my own leader to my personal goals…

Stranger

i am a stranger
an intruder of myself
i have become an alien
to my dawned habits
an immigrant of my dreams

In the nights of my growth
one barely knew me
i became a wanderer
in the palace of my soul
under a different roof

the ages drag me through
in the shelter of saints
where prayers became foods
in every meal of sinners
named me the guest of squatters

no longer a stranger
in the company of reformed
a drifter with wings
ready to take the merits of dignity
i am a resident of my own self…
