I Never See Me!

I made a brief visit last day
To the places,
Which were once dearer to me,
And I traversed through
The familiar paths
With palpitating heart!

On my psychological walk
I saw a boy there in early teens,
Who smiled, and jumped
Out of joy, and sometimes,
Cried, shouted and sat silent.

My inquisitive eyes
Watched him curiously,
And I identified him as the younger me
Whom I lost once, somewhere
In the path of
My transfer to adulthood.

Amidst my dust-coated memories
I scanned for myself
How did I look? How did I behave?
Oh, these obsolete, nonsensical thoughts!

I never see me
And I was seen by myself,
Through others’ eyes, silent narrations,
And through the reversed reflections.

When would I see myself?
Perhaps on the day,
When time travelling gets possible,
And when I learn the trick of 
Psychic transmigration.

Glad that you could see yourself. Its sad that we lose ourselves in the din of life.

I like your lyrics... though I think it's more like poetry than lyrics really. At any rate, it's good to be creative, or to explore the creativity you have.

Thanks for coming by and saying hi. It's nice to meet you!
