I choose to…

So many things to cry about,

Yet I choose to smile.

So many things to stay back for,

Yet I choose to go the extra mile.

So many things that still remain,

Yet I choose the ones yet to come.

So many things, festering, like open wounds,

Yet I choose to stay numb. 

So many things have wronged me in the past,

Yet I choose to keep an open heart.

So many daggers in my back,

Yet I choose a virtuous path.

Ms. Curiosity

Oh look! There she goes,

The fantastic – Ms Curiosity.

The one who has challenged

Our intellect, since eternity.

Go thank her for her

Bequests upon humanity.

Made us wonder; made us

Think and rise above tangibility.

Fathomed our ruminations,

Tested our dexterity.

Caused us to explore,

Gave birth to visionaries,

Picked us from our tedious lives,

Propelled us into a world called Possibility.

Squinting through 

The veil of traditions,

She saw

What the world 

Never wanted

Her to see.

A realm 

Full of


Waiting for her

If only she

Breaks free.

Him first,

They always told her

To think. 

Kept her aches aside

Found happiness

In his glee.

Never thought

That she 

Was someone.

Could be

More than a wife or 

A mother of three.

But now

That she knows

She won’t

Let herself


Her knee. 

She wants

To be 


And not 



To break through 

The chains 

Of false

Emotions and customs

And be what she

Wants to be.
