BE YOURSELF






B IS FOR 'BE YOURSELF'


 (Shouldn’t it be so?)


 A pledge I’ve made to me self;


Come what may,


From now onwards, I shall ‘be myself.’


No cringing, no appeasement,

I'd seek no agreement.
     
No longer will I be torn,


Before taking life by the horn.


Things will happen,


 To which, I give precedence.


To the gaping mouths,


I’d  say, ‘don’t look like that ’ without any hesitance


I’d follow my own standard,


Wouldn't mind to be so branded.


Friends, don’t  you think, time is ripe


(For the last leap,)


For women in turbulent waters to dive.




Friends,Welcome here as always!

  1. Lovely words, Uppalji.
    Totally agree :)
    High time we are ourselves.
    "Be yourself as everyone else in the world is already taken!"

  3. I think you make an excellent point with your lovely verse Uppal, that what is proper is for us to be ourselves, not what others think we should be. Our choices may be puzzling to them, but we need to follow our own hearts and minds and yes, always be ourselves!

  4. Well said, Uppaljee.

    Gotta be oneself cause ultimately that's what gives the satisfaction.

    Wishing you the best!

  5. Yes, we must be who we are. Everybody else is taken.
