She chose to fly with her fears 

Rather than fall with her dreams


All her life, she had dreaded

To be the girl she dreamt

She wanted to be free and fierce

With no one supporting her, standing at her rear


Oh, but she couldn't be so

She was told, "You have to always bow low"

She couldn't be her true-self

She was a pacified warrior while she wished to be an upheaval


Oh! The mountains she wished to climb

How the carriage of her life, she wished to drive!

Down into the serene waters she wished to go

Slowly and steadily she wished to grow


There was a world she had to explore

But all she could think was, "I have a garden to mow"

How she had challenged everything before

Now, she was a dead fish going with the flow


She had loved the twinkling stars of the night

But now she had to be awake to prepare herself to serve others before the sun was bright

How she had loved the chirp of thumping, the blood venturing through her heart

Now it was all quietude, till very far 


With a new smile, she used to start her day

Fighting billion problems on her way

Now her smile is a mere crease

She moves on with the cold sulky breeze


She held a galaxy within her soul

Her warmth was deserved by those, who loved her cold

Now she is all but alive

In the same galaxy, she lost herself, directed by others now, she is just trying to strive


She couldn't do this anymore, she realized 

She was a free bird, not meant to be caged

She was determined to break free from the shackles of the society

She was now going to be the girl how it was envisioned by the almighty


Pleasing others was a divine task

She could no longer wear the false facade

With obstacles, her wings would now be heavy 

But her heart would no more be guilty


She chose to fly with her fears 

Rather than fall with her dreams
