Someone Else

I walk through life often feeling
As though I might not be from here
As though this is not the era I must belong to
As though I am perhaps someone else,
Trapped in this body like a genie in a bottle
Swung far away into the sea
By a worried wanderer who was afraid
Of who I might be.
I know not yet my true calling;
Lost, I wander aimlessly,
Like a cloud unsure of whether to rain
Or simply be swept with the forceful wind
Where do I belong, I hopelessly ask
Is it just me who feels this way?

This poem is in response to the #HomoAquarius micropoetry prompt below:

    It is the eternal search of Man – search for self!

    You are definitely not alone in feeling this way Sreesha! πŸ™‚ I used to have a roommate who strongly felt she came from another planet and didn't belong here. I'm sure there are others…I hope you find them to give you some solace. πŸ™‚ ❀

    Very well written and profound. Everyone feels this way at some point of time.

    Yes, life in a way becomes that search for one's true calling. And each experience in some way or the other brings one closer to discovering it.
    Nicely expressed!

    I wonder about it rather too much; its like there is no point…
    And I feel very good when reading poems like these πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚

    So true. Many of us would share with you this feeling of wandering aimlessly, at times. But sooner or later you will find the purpose , the reason. Nice poem.

    Yeah, it's utterly futile pondering over it, no?
    Thank you πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Yes, the life, the thoughts about it, the people around us, all making no point, and we still wonder πŸ™‚

    Well, there are most likely others around…just keep sharing and eventually someone will say something, i.e., agree with you! πŸ˜‰ ❀
