Finding myself.

Finding myself.

A Poem by Anjali

I gaze up,
Try to find my shattered self.
I look here, I look there,
I'm not myself, here.

I walk ahead,
Trying to ignore the tree's grins,
They're here, they're there,
They're everywhere!
They're not my friends, here.

I fall down,
Trying to stop those goddamn tears.
I'm here, why am I even here?!
I'm trapped, here.
I'm stuck, here!

I stand up,
Trying to find myself.
I look here, I look there,
But, she's not here!

I turn around,
Trying to find a way out,
Am I here? Or am I there?
Am I even real?!

I spot her....
There she is, my shattered self.
I look here, I look there,
Wondering if it's even real.

I walk up,
Try to get a better view.
I look there and only there,
There's myself, here.

I finally reach,
I don't look anywhere,
As tears fall down my face.
She's myself,
Caught up in chains,
But, what's the use?

As, she's already dead.......
