Poem by Ashok K. Bhargava
 
 
Yearning …
 
How can I
be my own tree
my own roots, my own branches, my own leaves
my own seeds and flowers
in the morning of
my own sun.
 
How can I
be my own sanctuary
my own doorway, my own windows, my own back alley
my own main road
in the nights of
my own moon.
 
Deep down inside
I am my own Self
a seed
capable to decay
to germinate
to give life to new trees
Without you
I am not
who I am.
