A Transformed Self

Rakhshinda Shakir
Posted October 23, 2017


and he said,

Have you ever

felt transformed?


Not until then

when we met..

Do you hold faith on it?

Other wise,

I would never

felt such a difference.

Are you telling me

you have changed?


Perhaps if I was changed

that would be an effort

forcibly exercised by me

against my will power!

But I have transformed

for I have blindly followed

a heart


Listening to the echo of mine.

Faith, she said,

is when you blindly follow

and when I followed

I was no more the same

not changed, but transformed!!!

Hey Rakshi. Thanks for your sharing your compelling poem. Who is this about? Is it metaphorical? Intriguing.
