Contrary Mr Watson

Is it so? they asked me
And 'ya...' was my bewildered reply.
But why doubt it?
I thought at first, but
Hold on my friend 
My mind told me, there
Is something else that 
Beats the eye.

Are you what you seem to be?
'Ya...' I thought, but
Hold on my friend
My mind told me, there
Is something else that 
Beats the eye.

Then i thought, and i 
Contemplated.
Am I what I am? or
Am I what I think I am?
Or should I say
Am I what others think I am?

My oh my!! oh my mind,
Think its free, but 
Entwined.
Know yourself, it tells me.
It is nothing but my mind,
Know your mind, I tell myself.

Hey hold on! I say to myself,
Then are you different from
Your mind?
And then I ponder and ponder,
To realize...
Hey! you know your mind,
But,
Do you really Know Yourself??

    The eternal question, pondered with wit and wonderment.
