I Lost My Identity - Poem by Tulsi Shrestha

I lOST MY IDENTITY

Believe me! I lost entity of my own shadow
When I followed shadows of so - called greats.

Sometimes Nietzsche ruled my fresh mind
Sometime Jesus appeared to rectify them.

I intend to perceive myself as Buddha
But my behaviour favoured Hitler then.

Do their souls embody inside me?
Or my own soul is dead alive then

I gaze at my own plain mirror
I can't find reflection of mine.

I'm searching myself inside me
But not capable to find out yet.

Shall I manage for meditation
Or need to seek for revolution.


I need to visualise myself inside me
To establish myself as an unique me.

I need to preserve my fresh image
To ensure my own precious identity.

    A very good and thought provoking poem. We become a composite of many big and small personalities before realizing that none actually belongs to us. Our own self is simply a reflective mirror holding layers of perceptions for us to choose from. Congratulations for member poem place and thanks for sharing it. (Report) Reply

    I LOST MY IDENTITY
    Imitation creates shadows and identity is blurred.Life is meaningful if you live as it comes to you.
    A very good lyric. To understand self gratifies inner hunger.

    It is indeed a great poem.Congratulations for poem of the day.Every individual has his own identity and an inner cry to see it distinctively.But it may be shadowed by the so called greats.The pain of lost identity and cry to establish own image so marvelously portrayed in this poem- - - - -
    I gaze at my own plain mirror
    I can't find reflection of mine.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    I need to preserve my fresh image
    To ensure my own precious identity.
