There lies,
A wormhole inside
My psyche,
For my soul to commute to.
A journey of many births and deaths
In an instant.
Oblivious to myself;
As I turn into the 'other'
Only to return back.

I travel light with nothing;
…mental baggage…
….A name…
….A mishandled genetic map.
As being;
A chosen one;
Whom Lord offered
Endless free passes.

As I jog between my parallel universes
I ponder,
Am i 'this' person
Or 'that' one?
And who am i?
When I am none.

Conflict of interest

None declared.

Ganesh Singh Dharmshaktu MS. is Asst Professor, Department of Orthopaedics, Govt Medical College, Haldwani, Uttarakhand, India. He considers literary work an extension of his personality. Apart from performing his clinical duties, and social work like in health camps, he finds solace when immersed in good literature. Jotting down thoughts whenever he finds his creative juices flowing have been his precious and cherishable moments. He prays that the Almighty shower him with joy that comes from a satisfied patient and a satisfied self.
