Who Am I - Searching for My Identity

Umesh is a freelance writer contributing his creative writings on varied subjects in various sites and portals in the internet.


Life is a mystery and sometimes we try to unravel it only to find that it is becoming more and more complex. Searching for 'Who am I' is a part of this process and this poetry is an effort to showcase this desire of sokving the mystery.

Who am I

I do not know,

Who am I.

Neither my purpose,

Nor my body in exile.

There was no point,

In sending me here.

I was in complete calm,

In that treasure.

I only added to the liabilities here,

As a face unwanted.

I only added to the difficulties here,

As if a curse granted.

I seek my Lord,

An ansswer to my existence.

Do not test me more,

I have't any resistence.

Call me back,

At an earliest.

That is the only wish,

At my behest.


Searching for oneself and one's identity is a relentless pursuit. Many of us do it but mystery remains as it was and then the only option is to call upon God to resolve it in His own ways.
