Why Should I Hide Myself? - Poem by Pranayee Gupta Rachamalla
Why should i hide myself? for a reason called others,
Why should i cover my attitude for a reason called behaviour?
why should i conceal myself? for that what people think of me,
and decorate or disguise myself for the world, why can't i do it and be as i like?
Why should i cover up myself in order to make,
people think i'm polite and discard my feelings
by putting on a fake smile with the most unnatural expressions!
why should i dress up myself with silence?
so called decency what people usually think.
Why should i force myself to shut my mouth? , in the name of politeness
and control myself from being myself,
so that people don't think i'm crazy!
For what on this earth should i sell my happiness? for the silly thing compromise?
Why should i compromise? for so called adjustment
and be economic about feelings for the people who bother me.
If i listen and do whatever my heart says, it doesn't make me unruly!
Because i believe that behaving
how we are, does'nt mean we are proud!
and enjoying being ourself indicates that we are mad!
Because if we don't express our feelings,
and hide or dump it inside, mind becomes a dustbin..;
I would always like to be myself and enjoy being myself
because this is my life, ! and i'm not here to impress anyone!
