The phenomenon where the left becomes right and right becomes left is called lateral inversion.
This theory i read when i was in standard 6,while reading about mirrors and I was immensely fascinated by it. I always thought about writing or doing experiments related on it but somehow I realized that life itself justifies this theory a lot, atleast in my case it does. So I wrote a poem on it.

Read the poem and let me know what could you figure out of it ?


When the sun comes up, every night.
when the stars twinkle, in the day light.

when the fault is yours, and yet it's mine.
when i stand alone, yet last in line.

when i adore someone and when love is fight.
when heart is my brain, then my wrong is my right.

when i fail at times, my dreams come true.

when i know the outcome, I get bolts out of blue.

when the moments are like my sorrowful delight
then i am for me, is like black is for white.

I am the smoke, still I am dumped in ashtray,

I gulp my predator, even when i am a prey.

I pity me coz i fall when i rise
I am petrified by me coz I am prominent in disguise

I am so expressive and real, when i fake,
I am so constructive, coz I mend when i break

Comfort is me, yet my soul suffers
I walk contradictions and my similies are metaphors.

I see my future, like I see my history

Yes! i am like an open book & yet like a mystery.

P.S : In case you couldn't figure out or did not read it nicely,then let me help you. Every single line contains contradiction, either of words or of the logic (logic ?? wat's that BTW?)


  1. I was clearly able to read and understand...yipee and that too without a dictionary...

    This poem hit me so hard... am still looking at those goosebumps on my skin... ahem!!

    Peter ji, main aapki pankhaa toh pehley hi thi... aaj AC ho gayi...

    I love people who balance the dark and bright side of their personality pretty well... but I love it more when the dark side rules the bright one for few moments... and ur dark side just did the wonder for this poem...

  25. "I pity me coz i fall when i rise
    I am petrified by me coz I am prominent in disguise"

    prominent in disguise , nothing hides u

    "I see my future, like I see my history
    Yes! i am like an open book & yet like a mystery. "

    a mystery to your own self , but u dont hide from others .

    great one , full of contradictions , just like life .

  26. @ i'll try to be

    yeah ..justified :D

  27. This perhaps is the most simple and sorted out work of your I have read so far.
    Now, how 'contradictory' is that!

  29. I have always liked and thought of contradictions as a very effective way to express yourself.
    Amazing work.. I really liked it...

    this is the way I think.. it was close to my heart.. thanks for the poem ;)

  30. Comfort is me, yet my soul suffers
