I was a girl child
Parents told, stop being childish
Be good and work patiently.
Mom taught values,
Dad said, be fearless and brave,
Friends appreciated my attitude,
Worldly comments, "Girls need to behave"
Siblings said," You are a good soul,
Stay that way only, never give up".
Minding my own business and
Proving myself, I was always geared up.
I shifted to another family
My upbringing and their values differed, obviously!
They expected me to change, was that right?
However, I served them passionately.
This long and tiring fight
Between me and the world, will it ever end?
A question arises: why the society, the family,
To change me, is so hell bend.
The world always tried to cut my wings
To take me away from my own self.
Be it my childhood, my teenage,my youth
Was I ever free, be it my entire life!
"You don't need to change, nor you should"
Suddenly someone whispered within me,
Was it my inner voice, or
The one who whispered was He.
Yes, It was He guiding me, to be me
Not to loose on myself
As He said, I was one of those chosen ones
He was feeling proud of, Himself !
He whispered , It is not fair to wear a mask
for others happiness
It is better to be what we are
Cherishing our uniqueness.
Our mission of being on this earth
Has a purpose, known to Him
All we need is to dive deep in our soul
And let ourselves free to swim.
I appreciate and respect
my uniqueness gifted by Him,
As he said He will never let me down,
Only I need is to be aligned with my shim.
So here I am!
What I am!
