Darpan (rotates to mirror)


Darpan (rotates to mirror)

When you read something in Hindi,
do you turn it around in your mind,
and think it through in English?

When you speak in English,
do you think it through in Hindi,
and turn it around in your mind?

Does your mind let you see
what you really are,
when you look in the mirror?

i look in the mirror
and it could induce pride (darpan if you will)
a reflection my insecurities
an image if u will
less than as i would like to be seen

when you look at the mirror
and see your reflection
do you reflect
on this being a case
of the observer and the observed
being the same?

I look at my darpan in the mirror
and sigh in distress
i can never shake hands with my image
darn ambience
when i was right outside in
he was left inside out
there was nothing else left to do
but rub noses as the Eskimos do
