A new ME

I am ‘lucky’, as they say,

Born in a loving family, sunshine and hay.

 

I am ‘stubborn’, as they say,

Pampered by everyone, granted all my wishes away.

 

I am ‘obedient’, as they say,

To behave as told, many expectations they lay.

 

I am ‘me’, I object!

You don’t own me, I demand respect.

 

Emotions, mind and body,

Like a human, just as everybody.

 

Should I, always fight for my rights?

Someday you’ll give-in or, give my last rites.

 

Until I spoke, until I rejected,

For Generations, You took me for granted.

 

No more the spectator, No more the back seat,

A new journey has started, for the new ME within.
