#3 Finding Me

Me vs Them

​When I was just born,

They thought, “Poor girl, her skin is so flawed.”

They then taught me   “Don’t be racist. Do no discriminate.”

But over the years , I just realized – 

Racism was a hobby they can’t hate.

When a kid, they wanted me to gain weight.

And when I did, they are desperate to see me stick thin saying, “Love, it’s still not too late.”

They once said, “Score good grades.”

And when I did, “They mocked about petty things” . Again using swords and blades.

They promised , “We have your back.”

And then they stabbed me over and over, deep within, cutting no slack.

They smiled at my wounded self saying , “Be strong , you’ll be fine.”

And then they played me and had my nerves hanging on the lines.

They asked me, “hey, how do you do ?”

And then threw a list of things they wanted , making me wonder- why couldn’t there be just a real few?

And when I finally preferred the quiet and peace, of holding life in my own grip,

They came back barking,

“Honey, what’s wrong? Why are you like this?”

Sometimes I wonder, whether I lived for them and forgot about living for me ?

So now I live for me, so they can wonder 

that I can forget about how spiteful people be.

CHANGE…..

Times Change… People Change…

Thoughts Change.. Feelings Change… Paths Change…

EVERYTHING CHANGES…

You.. Me…He..She..We..

all change.. CHANGE IS LIFE!

Smiles change to Tears.. Moments to Memories..

Hope changes to Faith… and Understandings To Expectations…

Love to blind Trust..

A fresh green leaf one day withers away..

small babies in time grow old..

WHAT I HAVE NOW , MAY NOT BE MINE TOMORROW..

when time plays games.. Nothing can stop the power of CHANGE.

EVERYDAY, EVERYONE, EVERYTHING,  EVERY MOMENT, changes…

Why nights turn to days??

Why happiness is followed by sorrows??

Things we EXPERIENCE, Things we DO, Things we SAY, Things we LEARN, Things we THINK, Things we FEEL, Things we HOPE, DREAM, WISH ,WANT.... Things we DESIRE

ALL THINGS CHANGE!!!!!!

LIFE CHANGES ….

not because we want it to change, but “BECAUSE THERE’S SOMETHING IT WANTS TO CHANGE IN US”

WE CHANGE…..

not because life wants us to change, but “BECAUSE WE WANT TO CHANGE OUR LIFE”

like a spark of lightening across the darkest sky ,

a ray of hope in the smiles we receive…

signs life gives us,

sometimes we are prepared…. sometimes we aren’t..

CHANGE can be SUDDEN..

CHANGE can be SWEET..

CHANGE can be a PAIN..

CHANGE IS SIMPLY A NEW BEGINNING EVERY TIME WE WISH NO CHANGE…

we can’t avoid change but ACCEPT it… UNDERSTAND it.. GROW with it…

and let it CHANGE us for better…!
