I Am Safe With Mad Ones Like Me!


For the first time when light pierced in through skull
Showing many faces of life, but light even failed
not showing my face I screamed, ' where am I?
where is my body? who is screaming within me
not finding anything not finding anyone'
found my body finally between people laughed
thus I was called as a madman
I screamed 'Give me a face. Give me some space
give me some time so that I may be able to find myself.'
Nearer ones took me to doctors
and dearer ones took me to Godmen
They tried to show myself to me
but all failed, vacuum remained same
When I told them they were nothing like me
asked them to cure their own madness,
I became madman
mad one may not be safe with another
but believe me I safe with mad ones like me!

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
