The title is enough to convey that this piece comes from the heart and gives out the absolute truth.
While I showered today,
These thoughts poured down my mind
like the water droplets pouring down my body.
When I became an adult,
things didn’t change just for me,
they changed in ways good and bad,
they changed with me and within me.
I didn’t just get up on my own feet and stand for myself,
I did little things i never imagined i could and felt happy about it.
I didn’t just start living alone,
I understood and managed a home.
I didn’t just realise the importance of certain things,
I also got to know the misery it brings.
I started staying at home and in my comfort zone,
I had lesser friends than before,
but only those who stayed in my heart’s core.
I stayed silent at times,
for reasons of no such sublime.
I threw my rage at wrong people and places,
some of which may have left several traces,
on our bonds and hearts and our spaces.
But all of it has nowhere made me love those people and situations lesser
After all, it has been one kind of a lesson
I believe in the good and know that I will find a balance between who I wish to be and who I need to be,
In the meantime, I am grateful to myself and all those who gave their best in trying to be at peace with who I am.
