Poem by Monika Ajay Kaul
I’ll celebrate myself.. No matter what..!
While grieving on my unrealized dreams,
I’ll keep on cherishing my lived ones.
I’ll go with the ‘Remnants of Something’
rather than chasing ‘All or Nothing’.
Yes, I’ll always love my medusa hair look
yet I’ll glitz myself in the vanity.
I’ll let no one decide and judge my Substance,
ignoring my Self-worth or prejudicing my Pride.
I’ll smile on my feats, laugh on my spoofs,
cry on my damp-squibs, lament on my defeats.
Wail in my frustrations
and smirk on my pranks.
My vulnerability is my brawn.
It makes me human.
I won’t let anyone doubt
and question it as my infirmity.
I know people will scrutinize my perfections,
yet I’ll love to live with my faults and flaws.
Oh yes, I’ll still celebrate myself.
No matter what..!!
