I visited my younger self today

I paid an overdue visit to my old self today
~
today I visited my old self
usually in skirts, sometimes
grubby, torn from playground
skirmishes
twins warred inside
then –
one rebel tomboy, other bookworm

twins war inside
today as well
a docile loving granny
and a wicked comedienne

she said:
we had so many dreams
built upon castles in air
heroes leaping out of
Victorian romances
eluding cruelty’s claws
~
life real was more surreal
than our dreams
native intelligence
and awakening of Kundalini
took matters in hand
and now look at us
you are what
is the end result
~
I no longer sigh
on what could’ve been
what we’ve achieved
is more important
and we’ve been luckier
than so many
~
I said
go in peace
and serenity
as I too wait
for eternal
sleep
unhurriedly
