Calling all poets. Submissins are open for Wingword Poetry Competition!

In pursuit of identity

Mehak Taneja

Who am I?
Wondering looking up into the sky.
Asking myself,
About my existence among these people full of lies.

Fantasizing the birds flying high,
I also want to reach into my own sky.
By watching a seed giving birth to a plant,
I also want to build my Kingdom,
With all my heart.

Like a drop looses it's identity by joining the ocean,
I don't want to fall into a web of likely minded people.
In this world of people imitating each other,
I want to be recognised as 'authentic',
Or 'original'.

I don't want to become a part of 'flock of sheeps'
Instead I want to roar like a lion!!
Who rules the whole Jungle
With all his desires.

I don't want to know the purpose of my life,
Instead I want to create one!
With my experiences,
My endeavours.

Rather than people calling me 'one of the Poets'
I want to be remembered as 'The Poet'.
