Get Rid Of The Advertisements

What Are You Made Of?
 
What are you made of?
Some will say, they are made of flesh and bones.
Some believe,
They are made up of a heart, mind, and soul
Some will say,
They were moulded, from fresh mud, and clay
And some others believe,
They are stars,
They are spirits
That have no name

But what are you really made of?
Can you put your finger on a particular part, and say?
“This is the part which makes me,
Completes me”
Can you boast of the thing?
That sets you apart, from the rest
The one thing, which is the real essence of you
The one thing, that comes only from you?

Or you could be made up,
Of infinite things, like me

You could be made up of words,
Which make no sense
Of a house of cards,
Falling apart, every now and then
You could be made, of butterfly wings,
With fluffy, white clouds, in your head,
Or you could be made, of broken parts
Fixed slowly, and painfully again

You could be made up of wires,
Which never connect
Of plastic smiles, and silent screams,
Choked with regrets
You could be made, of colours,
That bleed at night, upon your bed
Or you could be made, of tears,
Those never seen, and never wept

And what am I really made up of?
I have no perfect answer

But I can tell you
That my eyes were painted
With a soft brush of innocence,
Blotted with sympathy,
And left open, in wonderment
I can tell you
That my mind, was crafted
With thin strips of perceptions
With empty spaces left,
For dreams, memories, and imagination

I can tell you,
My lips were draped
With a pink curtain of rose petals
That fall away sometimes
With words, I shouldn’t have spoken
I can tell you,
That my hands were sculpted,
With the dry sands, of ambition
Held tight in my fist,
The cuts, of what I left broken

And I can tell you,
That my heart was spun,
From the warm cottons of compassion
Which turn into dust,
From the lack of love, care, and passions
And I can tell you,
That my soul, was written,
With an invisible ink, of life and death
Visible upon a blank page,
Of the eternal

And now, what are you made of?
There are many things that make me
define me, and complete me.

But,
Look at me, closely,

Trip down my memories, and my heart,
Open the grave, of my mistakes,
My dreams, my hopes,
And my flaws
Scatter the remains, of my soul
My prayers, my breaths,
And my fears so dark
Unstitch,
The imperceptible threads if you can,
And I am all but,
Made up of scars.
