Great Me


                                                            Had pictured myself perfect
                                                            in the eye of my  mind
                                                            something goes if wrong
                                                            blame fell, never on me.

                                                            Never was aware the fact
                                                            I'm not what I think
                                                            until I saw the image
                                                            in my dear one's eyes.

                                                            One's friend can be a mirror
                                                            if you choose to see
                                                            but fact is that we don't
                                                            like to see the truth.

                                                            See ourselves beautiful
                                                            try to blame, others,
                                                            the world or whatever,
                                                            but never, the great me.

Written for "The Mag"  where we have to write a poem or short vignette using the picture featured as  inspiration.

So true ... the world or ~ whatever!

Very reflective. How we see ourselves and how others see us.

Tess Kincaid said...

No not the great you! ))

Rachel Hoyt said...

I love this! SO TRUE. That is also why the ones we love hurt us the most (sometimes)... they can see the real us and aren't afraid to tell us when we are less than perfect. :)

I like your interpretation of the mirror as reflected in the eyes of others. This is how I, too, believe. Nicely written.

True and well said.

Deep and thought provoking, wonderfully written Rashmi.

This is very wonderful and full of awareness about the human condition. Rashmi, you said you feel the urge to tell people in power what you feel - I encourage you to do it, and I will too. Our voices must be heard - all of our voices across the globe. Thanks so much for your comment!
