Curiousity

In the opportunity nightfall presents
When cricket chirps are like
The chiming of one eternity to the next,
I try to fathom, in elaborate terms
My place, in the vast expense
Called LIFE
Daring to ask the question
WHO AM I?

In the hustle and bustle
Of human ergonomics
When keeping up with identities
Becomes a dizzying pastime
And the existential laws of life
Place calculated demands
I muse once again
WHAT IF I AM?

On the great trail
That leads to conquests and rewards abiding
Where mortality seeks to surpass
Certain entrenched fallibility
I, in the labyrinth of manly instincts
Ask the inevitable:
WHAT WILL I BECOME?

However in the final analysis
From the scheme of things
What I will become
Bears its significance
From the cost borne
By my being on the roll call of earth
By -passing accidental ifs,
BECAUSE I AM!
