This year,
I want to shout;
shout my slogans
until I tire.
Tell the world,
they don’t decide
who I choose to be,
what I choose to be
and, how I choose to be;
not anymore.

This year,
I want to cheer;
cheer for the women
for what they are:
Smart, strong and so surreal.
Crossing the ocean of hate,
bringing themselves up
every time
they are pushed down.

This year,
I want to squeal;
squeal with happiness,
shameless and unfettered,
at a child’s innocence.
Reminding you and me
what a joy
this life can be.

This year,
I want to
shout, cheer, squeal,
This year,
I want to make myself heard.



Make A Wish

Make a wish.
Close your eyes, look into your soul.
And, make a wish.
Find you dreams, within yourself,
and make a wish.

Make a wish.
For your life depends on it.
Make it beautiful, make it yours.
For what you wish for,
echoes forever.

Make a wish.
Have a dream.
Get up, go out and give everything to it.
For through your dreams,
your charm, your wisdom, and your essence,
echoes forever.

Fade A Little

I fade a little.

I try to be strong,
I try to be happy,
but everyday, you remind me,
what I could not be.

I am not brainy,
I am not important.
I am not “like the other girls”,
Everyday,  when you remind me,
I am not worthy of some glee,
I realize I fade a little.

But, everyday you forget,
what I am and what I will be.
I am passionate,
I am exceptional,
and darling, I am
every girl and yet,
like no one else.
And every day, when you forget,
I fade a little.

But, dearest, every time,
you dissolved me in your ignorance,
I found my colour.
Every time, I dwindled,
because of your words,
I found my fading fervour,
growing, strong and intense.

And soon,
I realized, I need
neither your observation,
neither your validation,
because, dear,
I am the fire.
I am the fire that burns.
