Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

A Promise to Myself!

I break free from the molds of frivolous expectations of people

I refuse to taste the bitter burnt flavors of words tossed at me

I let go of my servitude to be responsible for other’s happiness

I disallow the societal malice to flow into my veins

I distance myself from the clan believing in narrow mindedness

I liberate myself from living on borrowed peace and teary emotions

I solemnly promise my fidelity to drawing the blue print of my life

Chiselling and sculpting my path on my terms

Engraving my signature on it, celebrating “ME”!
