Yes it is 8th March and yes, indeed, it is International Women’s day. But my heart knows everyday is my day. It is actually amazing to feel that way. And I have an overflow of emotions waiting to tear out of me today, which I am absolutely Not willing to share with anyone. So here is what I am trying for the very first time in my own special way. A poem that will let the inner me speak and the depth of it be heard only by me.
I am Alive….
I am alive after all that has happened to me,
I am alive till where my journey has brought me,
I have lived the way others wanted for quite a bit,
But, I now have a life to live of my own.
I am alive for what all is destined for me,
I am alive because I want to achieve,
I am alive because I am a strong daughter,
And, I am alive because I still have love for love inside me.
I do not imagine my destination,
I know exactly where I have to reach,
It will take time, the struggle will kill me inside,
But, I am alive to experience that moment of truth.
A declaration of freedom it is not,
A promise of self love it certainly is.
It is crazy to be me, I know,
But, I am alive because I am ME.
I am alive because I want to smile,
I am alive because I want to make other loving beings smile.
I hope these words reach someone who really needs it,
I am alive because I still have love for love inside me.
I am grateful to almighty for the power he has given me. It feels so good to pour my heart out and, yet, still be smiling.
I am not an advocate of this day because I feel everyday is everyone’s day. So wishing everyone a very Happy International Women’s Day. 🙂
Let me know in comments how have you made yourself feel special today.
