I Am What I Am

Rating: 5.0
You laughed and mocked
And kicked me hard
For you pray mammon I pray god
I have your coin you threw on me
Nothing is what it means to you
For mammon has blessed thee
But, I am blinded with its gleam
I could keep it forever
It’s where I build my dream(s)
And that is how I am….
I struggle and fight
To reach a place where your glitter
Is outshined by my light
There I shall be when I can
And that’s what I am…..

I am bruised I am battered
By your whims so hollow
Coz you made rules for me to follow
It was not frailty- I just loved thee
But you doubted my tears
Now I want to be free.
Lift my veil and see
I am Durga Saraswati Kaali**
That is what I am….
I stood up and survived
All your lies and illusion
Undulated by your fake promises
Now I am destined for my own Elysian
I will get it when I can
That is what I am…

They thrashed me bashed me
And spoiled my name
Only because I am not the same
As they wanted each soul on earth to be
Silent victim of their cruelty
For I wanted to lift my head high
With no reason for shame
Before I die
That is how I am
I am ready I am armed
With simple truths of life
Much stronger than your wizardry
I see a better tomorrow
Over you all that will be my victory
I will win it when I can
I am what I am

But for you men are not equal
Alas! they are ranked on same soil they trod
By Money Color even God
And I am punished for making a new start
Questioning your sovereignty! !
For retaining my dignity
And for connecting men heart to heart
Ah! You cannot kill me!
For I will born again
I am what I am and will remain


P.S ** Hindu Godess of supremacy, learning and power

Writing can be used as a healing process. This poem sounds like a need to heal by understanding one's actions to another once loved or maybe still loved while the other seems indifferent to that love given to them. Control of another person is strange and sorrowful state of affairs. It is generally done out of fear. The voice of the poem has realized that fear and has taken control of their personal feelings without surrendering the relationship. But if it too is an unhealthy place to be. For they are at the whims of the person's anger. They should not be trusted at all. a poet friend RH Peat
