Proud to be who I am

I am a girl with lots of courage( ;) )
And usually listen to Jason Mraz .

I am bindass as well as disciplined
Lots of expectations sometimes drive me insane.
Poet to composer, dancer to Radio Jockey
There is nothing I can’t be except lucky.
Hate skinny jeans and all glam dresses
The plastic girls with Gucci sunglasses.
I’m amazed to see the fashion haunted
With high heels, short minis and lean thighs confronted.
But it seems, I am the exception
Amongst all skinny babes and their perfection.
Zero size body and those fine curves
Seems to attract everyone but it gets on my nerves.
All those dumbo’s and their puppets
Wish I could disappear them in my pockets.
I am fine to be what I am,
A strict girl with big spectacles
And little fat at some layers.
Big eyes, flat nose as well as long plaited hair
I just love my family, friends and rest I don’t care.
So, stop being showcase and try to be natural
Needn’t be judged by my weight but by my morals……

You go girl!

Hahaha, you really tell it as it is. Very brave of you and I can tell by your words, you aspire for more than that. You are grounded and know where you are headed and who you are.

Never change, God bless you.

Everyone truly deserves to be seen beyond the physical. And every lady owes herself the responsibility of loving herself the way she is. Lovely poem

I am really inspired and encouraged by all your wonderful comments. Ya, we need to be one to remove this age old patriarchal programming that is deeply rooted in our society and try to be oneself :)
