One fine day it occurred to me
I am not what I think I am
Life-old myth tumbled in a moment
And all I could say was - "Damn!"
I set forth on my spiritual journey
Seeking the true 'I'
From scriptures to religions, I explored
As years passed by
At times, pride swept me off my feet
For the wisdom I had gained
But then it occurred to me again
That the 'EGO' had still remained
Then one day, I came across a Saint
- A truly enlightened one
"If you are seeking the 'I' - ", he said
"Then halt. Do not run!"
I then realized, what he meant to say
And my 'Ego' began to disappear
A smile spread across my face
As I walked away from the mirror
