A Life Through Borrowed Eyes!


How do you know you are real,

Looking through borrowed eyes into a reality full of lies.

Living in a diverse universe,

Multiple realities...

Existing in today, yesterday, & tomorrow simultaneously!


Which one is real?

Are you asleep or awake?

Is this reality or is this fake?

So many unknowns, the human brain can’t comprehend!

You need to be in it to win it,

Authentic or pretend?


But what does it mean?

Why are we here?

Who holds the wisdom?

It’s written in your tears!


Waiting for death!

Living life in-between!

Existing in life’s chapters & acting life’s scenes!


White noise!

An empty space.

A conveyer belt of a different face.

No meaning...

Just a blank space!




Cognitions turning!


Seeking the truth.. an innate yearning!

No relevance!

Relationships changing.


Is this Postmodernity?

Who am I?

Who are you?

Who are we?

Once blank, a tabla rasa!

Now inscribed upon,

Our Innocence gone!


No longer a unique individual in this life.

But instead inscribed upon,

With misery & strife.


Your end date existed before you were born!

The pressures of life ..

Lived sighs..

A life through borrowed eyes!
