I am thinking of calling myself up on the phone and asking me questions
I am thinking of calling myself up on the phone and listening to the answers I give
I am wondering how I will sound
How I sound?

When I answer will I be happy and cheerful
Will I be irritated by how cheerful I sound?
When I answer, will I feel a need to come over and hug me
Will I wonder why I sound so sad or in despair?

I am seriously thinking of calling myself on the phone
I want to know-
What do you think Haj?
What do you believe?
When there’s no one around, who exactly are you?
If no one else would know what happened, what can you do?

I want to know
Are you happy with the choices you have made?
And if you are not happy, can you re-chart your own course?
I want to know, does your life have meaning?
Are you living just for yourself or is there something beyond you?

I want to know
Will you leave a legacy?
And if you do, what legacy will it be?
Will you leave silver and gold and a bad name?
Will you leave a good name and silver and gold?
Or just silver and gold?
In fact, I would like to know what will be important to you,
What would you like to leave behind?

I am thinking of calling myself up on the phone
I am thinking that before I expect others to know and love me
I need to know and love myself
I need to listen to me
So that in interacting with the world, it is my most authentic self that I bring forward

I am thinking of calling myself on the phone
And taking me on a journey of authenticity, awareness, truth
and ultimately total self acceptance.
Perhaps you would like to call ‘you’ on the phone?
It’ll be the call of a lifetime!
