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.

Reach of expectations gets smaller,
When life seeks,
But answers don’t come,
Every day,
Asks for the coming day,
Every night,
Is spent in getting to the questions,
Time passes,

But everything comes to a standstill,
Something is broken every day,
Every moment shatters something,
Something dies somewhere inside,
Every reason to hope is subdued,
When expectations go silent,
When every answer sought,
Leaves a new question, a thought,
And with every such thought,

Expectations shrink even more..
