Inner Light

She looked at the sun;
So did I!

It was sunrise for her;
Sunset for me!

That night I didn’t wait for a new dawn.
I was tired of waiting.
I just switched on the light
And smiled at my reflection on the mirror.
I looked the same – in the sunlight and the artificial light
My eyes had the same twinkle
My smile looked no different
That night, I realized something
I am the same person regardless of the source of light
I just had to redirect the flow of thoughts
And change my mind.
I smiled again, this time concentrating only on myself;
For nothing else matters.

  7. I am the same person, regardless of the light. Unless it is very dark. Then I am someone else. Shhh....
