The Game

a poem by Salil

The game we play,
Is let’s pretend
And pretend
We are not

We choose to forget
Who we are
And than forget
That we have forgotten
Who are we really?

We put ourselves down
And have become
Used to this masochistic
Posture, this weakness,
This indecisiveness.

Your will is your power
Don’t pretend you don’t have it
Or you won’t!
