A Different She? - Poem by Neha Bhansali
A Different She?
Dressed fashionably she looks in the mirror,
Evaluates her self and frowns in pain,
Oh God, How much more weight did I gain……
My nose is crooked,
My lips are thin,
I am getting fat,
that is a sin! !
Must go to doc to chip my nose,
My lips must pout like a pretty rose
Did you not see what they stated,
When that famous actress was overweighted?
Who will love me if I don’t,
Oh, no one will even come close.
I can’t even bear the thought,
Some new gym must be sought
I have many other things to do, but these are all priority
Who will look at anything else.
This is only thing that people sense
My person for them is just a pence!
My face needs make up too,
The mascara is coming through,
Can you tears hold back for a while,
Request rejected by my devils two,
They always betray in times of need.
Yet always to them I plead.
Beneath the makeup, dress and all,
Where is the real me?
I myself can’t take a call
My family, friends and acquaintances judged me by that all,
Now I can see nothing beyond…..
Beating in my chest, my heart calls out to me,
At least once in a while let your soul be free.....
