And barring my inception,
I have been in this funny shade of grey all my life,
And it was here that I (however vaguely) defined myself.
It was here that my world assumed its color,
My thoughts assumed their precision,
And I let go of my cherished assumptions
It was here that the world overwhelmed me
My conscience got foggy for the better,
And uncertainties flooded me.
It was here that I learnt how to love,
My gods became redundant,
And I threw away my crutches.
And it was here that I learnt how to live,
How to flow despite the flow of life,
And how to feel when the world seemed numb.
