The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

You are the one I cannot say

But I was drawn to your words

And it has been that way

Surviving the odds of living

Keeping the words in thoughts

I know I haven’t lived up to

But my soul remains with you

Erred I did, but never did I fail

Even if I felt jaded, I did sail through

With me, with you, afresh, anew
