Face to Face

Tell me about yourself- enigma, puzzle, yet to be known
Still you describe with clarity in detail – details are assumed to be revealing.
What have you done – buried in the dust or kept in the library with yellow books,
Still you explain one by one – to show that a treasurer is still awaited.
What can you do – given, written and visible on the wall
You still say it loudly – to believe that you also believe it.
How can you say that – for the sake of saying, just a formality
You bring rationale and weave it – to convey the weakest link is not the ultimate strength.
What you want to do in future – alas! The eternal illusion
Pause, halt, dilemma, qualm and finally you utter- want to be on the other side!
All said and all done - you did the greatest service to humanity,
You confirmed, fulfilled one ego and subdued other desire,
You did not break the motion – change in momentum is force,
You had very small surface area and the force would have ameliorated you,
You let existence won over identity – you are still a hero!
