I

Who am I, My first identity is my family and if I’m one of those without a family then it is my country. Religion to me is what I choose because I don’t believe in the word religion. I have more Faith in the word Faith. Faith is my strength, Faith in me. Faith in my abilities and in my responsibilities. This Faith is the foundation of my life and how I live it. At times of positive or negative instability I tend to talk to myself in the form of talking to a Hindu, Christian or a Muslim “God”. I tell myself my problems, I cry, I beg, I thank, I wish, in other words I pray. It gives me succour, It gives me strength, It gives me resolve to go on and jump another hurdle or whiz past on another highway of life. Whatever life throws at me I face it with my Faith in me. In other words I, am my strength and I, am my resolve. I, am the answer to my questions. I, am the solution to my problems. I, can achieve anything and I, can fail at everything. I is me. I belong to me and only me. And therefore I depend only on me. I is my initiative to help me discover me. I evolve, adapt and grow into a person I choose. Only I can make a monster or a mahatma out of myself Or I can simply grow to be me. I think I’ll want to be only me now and forever.

Ecstasy


It was a beautiful evening after sunset. He was standing on the most beautiful beach he had ever been to, a bottle of beer in hand he stood there watching a light house on a distant island as its beacon flashed by every few seconds, and then as he watched the ocean the feeling returned to him, it was darkness all around and he stood there alone, the loneliness was comforting on this pristine untouched private beach. He felt that peace as it coursed through his veins, It was the ocean it seemed to be inviting him into its blue tossing waters to enter them, to disappear into their cool wet confines, to walk into its warm comforting embrace.Like a lover on a cold granite floor, like a mother kneeling towards her two year old. Oh what an Amazing feeling! It felt even better than the adrenaline rush he had felt flying high over the ocean earlier in the evening while parasailing. As he stood there bewitched by its beauty he seemed to hold himself back, just as his heart was about to give into the temptation, "NO! Not yet, Not just yet, you will have to wait some more. My love!", he seemed to say as he turned his back to the God sized mermaid called Sea and walked back to his cottage for a blissful night's sleep...
