The Undefeatable Me..! ! - Poem by Rajee Amlani
The world around me…
Always speaking…. Always commenting…
About me, my clothes, my hair, my behavior, my choices,
The way I speak, the way I smile,
The way I cry…
My feelings, my emotions, my entire life
Is all mocked at!
It breaks me, it tears me apart…
My face does not reveal it,
I am tied together with a smile,
I don't let my tears fall,
I don't want to be called a "cry baby"
Is it only me..?
Why am I made the victim of their scrutiny?
They think I am weird!
They think I am weak, petty, incompetent,
Lonely, introvert, geekish…
They think I am unimportant…
Do they really know me..?
Have they ever lived my life..? ?
Stepped into my shoes…?
Felt what I feel..? heard what I hear..?
Thought what I think…? Cry the way I do..? ?
Live the way I live..?
Then why on this earth do you Judge me..? comment on me..? scrutinize me..?
Criticize me..? misunderstand me..?
I ask you… WHY..? ? WHY..?
Do you think I consider it..?
Do you think I give a damn to it..?
Yesss….. I do..!
You have the power to break me,
Yes you do affect me….
You SERIOUSLY do…
But you know what..? ?
Your words no longer affect me-
This disease of "public opinion" will no longer inflict me…
I will no longer burry my face!
I will no longer stay quiet!
I will no longer prison myself into silence,
My voice will no more go unheard!
Yes I am imperfect…
Yes I am faulty…
Yes I do make a lot of mistakes….
I'm me…! !
The real me..!
The invincible me..!
