My Loss of Me By Me

My Loss Of ME, By ME

Blameless was I day I was born me
Dispatched by God lovingly as me
I gurgled, cooed, slept as just me
One hundred percent pure me

I waddled, crawled, toddled as me
Making all happy with me as me
I smiled at mom n dad selectively
Losing one percent of me

Education was fun stressful alternately
I pulled out my half formed mask
Completed painted donned on me
Losing a wee bit more of me

Love courtship marriage came happily
Son husband son-in-law were all me
More masks were created easily
Decreasing more percent of me

Society, colleagues, pals surrounded
Pulling pushing robbing me of me
Masks multiplied for survival easily
Camouflaging chunk of me from me

In solitude I often ask myself
Where am I pensively, woefully
Pleading show me way O Lord
Let me regain my original me

Striving hard stripping removing
Multiple masks time plastered
Valiantly, heeding my Master
Implicitly for salvation ultimately

Now I can look up at my Lord
Pure of heart as he created me
With contentment peace serenity
One hundred percent pure me

It is not necessary that you leave the house.
 Remain at your table and listen.
 Do not even listen, only wait.
 Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone
.The world will present itself to you for its unmasking,
 it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet.
Franz Kafka – Austrian, Poet
