MANY SHADES OF ME

Some see the little peacock

With flowery feathers of different shades

Artfully opened like a colourful fan

Showing hens that they are merely plain

II

Some see the plain comedian

Immature and never serious

Living large like one immuned to problems 

Hopping like a little bird with a golden crown

III

Some see a burdened horse

With so many goods and no hooves

Strapped to a carriage overloaded with beings

In hunger with burdened responsibilities

Of taking goods and beings to their destinations

IV

Some see the biblical ant

Working in wisdom like one blessed by God

With a head to kill for

Hands to vie for

Voice to pray for

Without a dent in image

V

Some see a perfect mother

One who is like a good hen

Protecting, feeding and teaching her young to live

Looking around in great direction

Interested in great details of her family

VI

Some just see the cold hearted tigress

All claws with no heart

Killing Cupidic beings with speed

And feeding on their egos

Listening to none but her brutality

VII

Sad how I identify

With a little of all

Cruel how the notion crown fits

This conscience in bits

Different shades of me

This is the different shades of me

Its reflection cool and crude
