My Poem about me – “Who am I?”

This was the poem – “Who am I?” I wrote in 2008 when I realized what life is. It was my first attempt to write a poem in English. After finishing college, I was freelancing and was jobless for some time. I had a tough time leading the life I wanted to. I went through series of thoughts and asked a few questions to myself why I’m here and what I’m here to do. There born this poem. It should go through loads of corrections. But Writer Sujatha’s thought of “keeping the same original version for the genuine impression of how we were at that age” made me stick with the original version. Here is it, about me titled “Who am I?”

Who am I?

Who am I..?

I’m like a snake… Be in awe?

Peeling my skin of sorrows and bad assumptions

then wearing a skin of experience

I’m like a snake…

 

Taking re-birth everyday

but with experienced head

towards pioneering navigation…

 

I’m a new-born

every-day,

every-minute,

every-second…

 

Being fresh but experienced…

am in this world

to leave my mark

not just in this globe

but in this very big Universe…

 

Couldn’t get me…?

I’m a

cool-headed

imaginative-eyed

kind-hearted

capable armed

pioneering legged

noble-blooded

excite-spreading nerved

living being with

innovative thoughts…

 

Asking what my brain is…?

Brain is all that

Executes all…

 

Cautious Brain to do unique…

Fearless Brain to do experiment…

Uniquely experimenting ever

with my views…

 

I’m a stranger named

Arun Vijayarengan.
