Shut Up, World!

Image Source

I see myself in the mirror
Only I know the real me
Stop judging me you trespassers
All I need is to just let be

I am smart and work very hard
I also know to cook and clean
I will not bow down to conventions
Enough of this world I have seen

I shall dress the way I want
Being married doesn't mean I change
I shall continue to be what I am
My dreams are not bound by a range

There is no need for me to be like a man
I know my own strength and might
I do not need someone to tell me things
I know the difference between wrong and right

I choose what I do with my life
Nobody but me has a say in it
I might not be all sorted now
But I'm aware how the puzzle shall fit

I do not need praise or flattery
I know exactly who I am
Against the tide of others' venom
I'm the one who successfully swam

I've been through enough ups and downs
To understand how to lead a good life
Unwanted judgement shall only waste time
Cut that thought now, with a knife

I have loved, lost and loved again
But I did not give up on the feeling
People only have pointed fingers
No one was a part in my healing

I shall do whatever I want to
I will not listen to what anyone will say
My passions and desires are rooted deep
In every season I shall learn to make hay

I'm very happy in my own way
Made the best of whatever life hurled
I do not care what others think of me
So for now; just shut up, world

  7. Agree with the comments above, the lines that really struck a chord - "People only have pointed fingers
    No one was a part in my healing"
    I guess we help ourselves the best! :)

  8. Rightly said - people only know how to pass comments. They love it when you are sad. No one comes when you are suffering.
    Another good one from you.

  10. Great way to put it across Soumya! Looks like lot of people here found the pointing fingers and healing part close to their life, we all suffer - dont we?

    I loved these lines for I think this is what made the character strong - Against the tide of others' venom, I'm the one who successfully swam

    God bless!
