silent watcher

watching moving pictures
of my fleeting life
“I knew this face once”!
that person gone
and many other masks I wore
with both shame and pride.
now far removed from all the show
a silent watcher
free and unconcerned.

Meditation creates a distance between our thoughts and our true self. Our life starts to appear like a movie that we are watching, rather than participating in. How many such movies have we watched? How many different faces have we worn?
