I am Nobody

I’m nobody! Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

Then there’s a pair of us -don’t tell!

They’d banish us, you know.


How dreary to be somebody!

How public, like a frog

To tell your name the livelong day

To an admiring bog!

-Emily Dickinson

  1. Awesome! I dont know why but following lines of ghalib come to my mind randomly after reading this (why your posts always make me remember ghalib!! What is the connection?!! 🤔):

    न था कुछ तो ख़ुदा था, कुछ न होता तो ख़ुदा होता!
    डुबोया मुझ को होने ने, न होता मैं तो क्या होता?

    1. Thanks a lot dear.
      I wouldn’t say that I am nobody, but neither would I like to say I am somebody. There has been a constant stugfle within me to know who I am and what my purpose is in life. So to avoid this constant battle and get going with “life” I have a post coming up “Finishing Line”
      It is just a way to liberate myself from this constant unanswered questions, from the unxeratin future so that I can be in this pronised present.
      I hope ypu like it.
      Much love to MY SPECIAL Friend.😘
