What if ?

Yanglem Arjun Singh

The ink on my skin that I scribbled yesterday,
Feels like forever but is fading away,
As if centuries ago it belonged to me,
As if it was the one that defined me.

The fading away makes me ponder,
Was I ever born before?
If I had a life before, how would it have been?
Happy, soulful or filled with pain and suffering.

But what if we all were together in before life?
What if our fates are determined the same throughout the eternity?
What if we are repeating the same things?
Just like the sun and moon's everlasting scrutiny!

What if we all had felt death before ?
What if our memories were erased as we drowned?
What if I was born before ?
Just a mere thought or maybe more.
