Stunned by the shadow,
Trying to separate myself,
Did I comprehend the truth;
Two entities,
Two faces,
Parallel lives led by me.

The shadow adheres,
It, being a part of me;
Baffled by the duality,
Do I crave for a new horizon-
Where I need not others’ assurance,
And live by their norms for their acceptance.

The human face broke me to pieces,
I rebuilt myself and hugged the devil’s face-
Being a replica of the human race.

Invisible rope of guilt-
Suffocates my quintessence,
I veil myself from the entity unknown,
Anticipating a better life-
With the opportune means to grow.
