I do not know what
But something is changing in me
I am no longer a person
I used to be.
There were times when I showed my reactions on every small act
Now I just let go and take a deep breath.
There were times when I chased people
To be with me for a while
As I connected my happiness with their presence in my life
Now I can be alone and still have that smile.
There were times when I used to look for recognition and awards from them
Now I have understood my worth
and very well know WHO I AM.
Not everything that's happening around
Disturbs my inner peace
As I have stopped putting glue
On every broken and scattered piece.
Yes I am quite vigilant
For who enters my home
As instead of sharing my room
with bitter people
I would always prefer to stay alone.
It's not that I do not empathise
With the people around
All that changed is I have started
keeping myself on priority
Doesn't matter even if selfish I may sound.
Though my emotions are still alive
I can very well feel their pain
But throughout these years I have acquired
The wisdom of wearing a raincoat
While in the midst of thunderstorm and rain!
