KNOWING ME BEING ME

Dissecting me fully
Every flitting thought
Captured studied earnestly
Every intention willfully
Worried and mulled over
Facing with squared
Shoulders bitter truth
I AM NOT WHAT I PROJECT
Myself to be, and My
Intent is diametrically
Opposite to what I write
And to what I think, say
And realization dawns that
I AM NOT NICE ACTUALLY!!

The day I start emanating
Those intentions that are
Of my own choosing
Of my personal liking
When speech and intent
Both merge and mean
One and same thing
Then and then only
Can I say with honesty
I mean every word as
Now I know my intent
Dovetailed with my word
Spontaneously without
Any force or coercion!!
NOW I am a person of my word
Comfortable in my own skin
Shedding masks and pretensions
False pride and pseudo bravado
Self -a pure kernel shorn of layers
Proud to have embarked upon
This journey of self-discovery
Defeating negative thoughts
Breaking false veneers imposed
By external forces and for self
Preservation, yet unnecessary
Cathartically cleansed swabbed
Purified blemish-less I am proud
To know me, have FOUND me!!!
