Who is she? (I)


Originally posted on Feb 26, 2018

Part I of this poem was written in early 2016. After three months, I found out that the story line could be extended and hence came Part II and III in mid 2016. However, I knew that there was more to it but was unaware of what it was until 2018. While working on a college assignment that gave me the freedom to be creative, I finally found the last and final part of this poem.

(I)

Who you see is not me.

I told you a thousand times.

“Who are you then?”

You always asked.

I changed the conversation

Each time, with a faint smile.

Today I have decided

To answer your question.

Hard it was, for me,

To turn back

To those pages

Of my journey

That I had been trying

To escape since long.

As I have allowed you

To look into my scarred face,

I believe, time has come

That you’ll understand

My answer to your question-

I was a budding flower.


Read Part II

Read Part III

Read Part IV

      1. When I wrote it for the first time, it sounded complete to me too. But then I realised there was more to it. I wrote the timeline of writing this piece just above the photo.
