A Poem titled "Myself"

myself

By Anuj Chugh

Maybe it wasn't his fault.

Time flew away all too soon

Forced him to grow up too soon

You know....

The times

When your heart isn't ready

But your mind has to co-operate

Maybe he wasn't ready when

All his friends left him

One by one....

To pursue dreams of their own

Or maybe, he never had any friends to begin with

He was always too simple

To understand what

Self-centeredness meant,

What selfishness meant

What these guys pursued

What these dames were up to

Or maybe, nobody ever understood him

As nobody ever understands him now

But he is as simple as ever

Not blatantly asking to be understood

Got all the time in the world

To be anything

Yet loves deeply

Despite the misery

And the bruises that would cut him deep

If you could ever see the overwhelming

Pain inside him

You would know

The miracle

The odds placed against his survival

You would know

How he had to play the God that doesn't exist

If I could save him

I would stare into his deep brown eyes

I would help him find 'it'

And take him home ....

To where he can eternally rest

While still in the world

In the refuge of his own soul ...


At the time of writing this poem this was a sincere 'Prayer' in my heart.

The world had been too tough for me for too long. I was trying to create a certain stability or a decent system to fallback on to work out my life and and my dreams.

At the time of publishing this poem, I 'think' I have figured it all. I am a bit happier than my previously unsure self.

This is how I believe prayers are answered. When you ask to be shown a way, you will be shown a way.

Unseen hand of the divine force is always at work.

You are to take care of yourself and then there is the world, at large.

But there's the divine forces too, or the 'collective good' if you may call it that.

Be approachable. Be willing to seek help. And lastly, be willing to 'be helped'.

Do not hold any preconceived notions. Help can came from the most unlikely of places.

Thank you,

Anuj Chugh
