The Inner Me

The Inner Me

1 min 194 1 min 194

Time urged for a change; 

An alteration of my whole self. 

Heedlessness would bring me the destiny 

Of a magnificent sand palace on a shore. 

I am in urgent need of a confrontation   

Between my conscious and the unconscious self. 

  

My adversaries raised a fort of enmity 

Like the Great Wall of China. 

I thought I was mistaken,  

Because never have I caused animosity. 

But who has turned them against me? 

It's he, the inner me, I know. 

 

Hatred: I tasted it from my beloved ones; 

Even my shadow brought contempt. 

They were at fault, I believed, 

As I've never hurt anyone. 

So, who has played the role of a villain? 

It's he, the inner me, I know. 

 

A laughing stock, I became, 

Among my near and dear ones. 

They were pranking, I thought, 

Because I always had been serious. 

So, who has made me a chump? 

It's he, the inner me, I know. 

 

Innocent ones hid from my sight, 

Scared of my unpredictable rage. 

They were androphobic, I thought, 

Because I seldom roared aloud. 

Who has given them the wrong impression? 

It's he, the inner me, I know. 

 

I never spared time to know me, 

And my bogus mates always justified me. 

I never knew they did more harm than good. 

Knowing the self is knowledge and true wisdom. 

Finally, who has now given me this insight? 

It's he, the inner me, I know.
