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.

Living on the edges,
When the drums beat the sounds in the empty moments
Residing in the void,
Running like a nimble sprinter’s empty mind movements
Living the joy of running,
Visiting the life in moments but seldom in compliments
Thriving on the craze,
Of being the lazy fellow riding high on absurd sentiments

Sometimes, it soothes when there is nothing to follow
Sometimes, it relieves when things look not so in reach
Sometimes, it makes internal peace to remain subdued
Sometimes, the sweat smells so sweet along your path

Sometimes, it makes sense to talk nonsense, 
Letting you do the funny tango
Sometimes, reading the crap enlightens more, 
Than the mystery wrap on the go

We all need to live like this, absentmindedly, on days like this
We need to talk to the alter ego of the ‘cosmetic us’, freely, on days like this

When we feel low, 
When we feel hollow, 
When we feel betrayed, and 
When we feel lost, 
On a day like this 

When we live the life, once lived, but now seldom thought, 
In a way like this
When we make sense of the ‘ignored us’ and a ‘forgotten life’ to go, 
In a way like this

Have you been able to find the child in you, 
On a day like this?
