Sometimes

I wish I hadn't seen
what I saw,
at least then
I wouldn't have become
me at all.

bangalore-theatre-tamil films...I somehow can't help thinking I know you, but this of course is the place for anonymous familiarity, so let that be. Liked what I saw here, on the whole. Writing in tense, compact lines is something I myself cannot do. wish I could. will come back for more.

If you hadnt seen what you saw, you wouldnt be the you that you are... but would a different you necessarily have been a happier or better you? :)

*phew* (head spinning after that bit of pop-psychology) ;)

Seeing what you did and doing what you did...

It all Builds Character! - as Calvin's (Hobbes) Dad says!!

Me thinks this is one of your best ones.

Hmm...very nice but confused by the variety of strains this post seems to convey...is the emphasis on what was seen or on what you have become?
