Hiding inside

What is a person

From inside

What does one identify

See themselves as

When they look at

Their face in mirror

What goes through

Their tranquil mind

When they are lying

Alone on their couch

Are they the person

Their parents made

Or by their school

College days

Or by profession

They practice everyday

With utmost sincerity

Working hard

Most of them are

Pretty clear

What are they

What they want to be

Few have a darkness

Hiding in them

Serpentine and shifty

Disguised well

That twists and garbles

Their feeble mind

Makes them obey

Some arcane rules

From long forgotten

Age old times
