Together with my thought,
We found myself
Stranded within the prism of my brain cell
All alone, All along!
After countless times of fruitless wait,
After a long walk from the southern part to the northern hemisphere,
I decided to steal strength and continue with this journey of finding myself.
Alone i walked,
Until my thought caught up with me.
I had a torchlight of hope in my hand,
It illuminated the dearth of every secret about life and self,
And everyone i encountered,
Left me wiser to the journey still ahead.
Their faces were creamed with smiles as we talked while their lips snarl abuses behind as i ventured deeper.
I searched much deeper into the dark,
Through the dirt of life,
And sometimes gamble on the street where noble men feast,
But still couldn’t find myself.
I went straight into the reservoirs of wisdom
Where men of white Beard and grey hair make deposit of wealth,
So that those who are tasty could have a drink to their glory,
But sad, most of these brains are swallowed by mother earth today,
And made her the richest of them all till date.
Mine is not there anyway,
Neither did i store it in the reservoir for those that are tasty to have a drink.
Alone with my thought,
We both found myself,
Stranded within the prism of my brain cell,
All alone, all along.

Finding oneself is a lifetime process. Goodluck!
