You do not see me for I am not your shadow

Yet it is you that I furtively, doggedly follow

You do not hear me for I am not your voice

Yet I dictate your actions and your choice.


I am always there looking from the outside in

Even though you are oblivious in your daily din

I observe I track; I keep check to always ensure

By being your conscience, you, I forever assure


That I shall keep you on the path, straight and narrow

Even when you give up when in misery you wallow

I shall be your inner voice, shielding you from sin

I promise to always keep looking from the outside, in.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
