Who am I?

Facebook Comments

As a child my ears always caught on to comments about myself, she is too deep, very profound, empathetic and an avid thinker. I always thought I was a bit different from others, one second I was a chatterbox and the next second was like a mum monk. Growing up it did not register much to me and I could not soak up the true essence of who I really was. I always had tons of questions about my identity, my sense of existence, and most of all what is my true purpose in this life. After all, we are an integral part of the universe and owe a big chunk of us to this priceless gift. Has been the longest struggle of my life, still battling to find answers to some unanswered questions and patiently waiting for the right time. 

Have you ever wondered who you really are?

I AM are two of the most powerful and liberating words that shape us externally and internally. Things happen in life, that’s okay. People disappoint us, that’s okay. We disappoint ourselves, that’s okay. Have no doubt that we all are unique and have something very prized to offer each other.

Take the time out, peek within yourself, ignore the outward noise and clutter, you will be pleasantly surprised to say hello to yourself!

Who am I
An amalgamation
Concrete and subliminal
Illusory and whimsical
Who am I
A tank full of emotions
An ocean full of love
A force beyond the sun
A force beyond the moon
A force looking beyond the horizon
A force beyond the bounds
Who am I
A dancing ballerina
Inundated in solitude
Inundated in hope
Inundated in desire
Who am I
Flawed and warped
Black and white
Confounded with shades of gray
Beyond the realm of reality
Who am I
With a numb smile
Frozen chuckles
Shattered bonds
Yet self-assured
Yet empathetic
Yet sanguine

Who am I
A soul tip toeing
A soul yearning
A soul-seeking
A soul unearthing
Who am I
A whiff of air
A lost droplet
A stumbled rock
Who am I
Drenched in nature’s symphonies
Soaked in my own reflection
Immersed in my own flame
Igniting the fire
Smoking cinders
Ruminating and musing
In the quest
To search
Who am I
Living with a zeal
Ardently waiting
To close this chapter
With acceptance, grace, and cheer!

Love, peace, and blessings!

    Lucy Chaddha –So awesome! Resonated, vibrated to each feeling & thought.

  2. MoNíka

    Sue Khanna –So true n befitting. From time to time we always stop to ponder this very important question that pops into our brain. Many a time we are scared to meet our true authentic selves so we shove it underneath the carpet, drag that thought to the corners of our brain. And again it pops up. Still we never find the answer and that is the pursuit of life

    As you move forward in Life.. Life itself gives you, shows you, rather help you to find all your hidden asks.. but in this journey one should never forget.. there own #AIM as they say..Mujh mey Tu Tujhe mey main basa.. { I m in U.. U in me}… which means when you give away #Main you will surely find #I … rest you leave it for #PathofLife… coz if you are confused u confuse surroundings.. & if you are at #Peace you spread #happiness.. so just keep moving forward and don’t look back…❤️❤️

    We have a question whenever Mona writes from her heart. We are remembered of her sitting in the Balcony outside her bed room in Vasant Enclave in India and writing something. We tak pride in being Monika’s parents.
