The Me I Wish to Know.

The Me I Wish to Know.

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola
"

....

"
Every second kills the second that fathered him,
dragging humanity forcefully into a foggy dream,
I know who I was, I know who I am,
Who I am to be in the next second lies ahead of me.

Though, he is who to come but already in memory,
I keep struggling all day to see him comes to reality.
Here I am hustling, facing challenges and difficulties,
not for the man writing this but for him who I am to be.

Like an artist in my hand lies the chisel of my life,
giving to me to carve the statue of that me I desire.
Though, I never knew him but he's there looking at me,
believing that someday, he's going to be a better me.

We are always learning. Life is lesson and more lessons.
"Like an artist in my hand lies the chisel of my life,
giving to me to carve the statue of that me I desire.
Though, I never knew him but he's there looking at me,
believing that someday, he's going to be a better me."
The above lines is what we all seek. To be better and wiser. Maybe one day, do what we suppose to. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

You are welcome my friend.
we are all a work in progress and each second that passes finds us a second older maybe a second wiser, but a second closer to our end. We long to find those seconds unwrapped in peaceful resolution and harmony.
Nicely expressed here.

Thank you, Sir Jacob.
You are right.
You are working still on who you want to be. I understand that because we evolve. We do not stand still and our experiences in life mould us. I am a vastly different person to the me in my early twenties. I was shallow, no depth. The years have provided the depth. I like where these lines took me Kay. I went on a journey. I am still on a journey.
