"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

I am a stranger
While you can, remind me who I am
I search for me when I can
To know more, sometimes less
I saw a part of me run down a tunnel
I know not when..

I am a stranger
I look for me every now and then
Hoping to find the part I lost
Stumbling unseen down the tunnel
I peeked in every time to pen

I am a stranger
My beginning looks blurred from here
The end I can't see I fear
Standing alone, stumbling in a tunnel
Do I go left or right? Oh! seriously where?

I am a stranger
Chasing the wind
Peddling away madly
Like I knew where I was going
Turning, thought I hit all the right bends..but sadly...

I am a stranger
Living in a dream
I used to dream all the time
In a world I had woven
From threads yet to be proven

I am a stranger
I watch, I talk, I read, I sleep
I paint, I write, I care, I live
I wake, I walk, I shudder, I weep
I sing, I click, I hear, I retrieve

I am a stranger
Dying to know
What it is I'm dying to do?
Figuring it out...yet still..
I wish I had a clue!

I am a stranger
A wandering ranger
A constant dream changer
I was like Hermione Granger
Am I in danger?

I am a stranger
A stranger in a strange land
Standing on burning sand
Ouch! My feet hurts
It's not addiction
Yet this, right here, is stranger than fiction

I am a stranger
I look into the mirror after every fall
I ask:
'Mirror Mirror on the wall...
Who is the strangest of them all?'

I am stranger
A log of wood
Drifting away on loner tides
Set me on fire
If it isn't any good!
I'll save all my goodbye's...

I am a stranger
 I took what I got
This isn't my story
Please tell me it isn't..!
But I am a stranger, I forgot..

I am a stranger
A feather floating forever
I don't mean to stop ever
Take me to a place I've never been
Show me a sunset I've not yet seen

I am a stranger
Storming away
An arrow through my heart
Its hurting me
Try can you?
To pull us apart?

I am a stranger
In a crowd still lonely
In a jungle downright homely!
A bird missing from its flock
Now which door should I unlock?

I am a stranger
Looking for what to look
Skimming through every unread book!
Trusting every corner nook
Won't catch me by the hook..!

I am a stranger
Penning this now silent
Frowning a bit, not violent!
I'll come around in time to come
Wait for me..
Unusual is where I'm from!
