The poet explores the moment of metamorphosis when a woman is done trying to live her life on others' terms and decides to do it her way.
I am done being who you want me to be
I am done seeing what you want me to see
I am done doing what you want me to do
I am done with regrets so I no longer rue!
I am done agreeing to everything you say
I am done following, doing things your way
I am done wearing what you approve of
I am done with instructions, so please stop!
I am done keeping quiet, done with silence
I am done cloaking my hurt as resilience
I am done being prey to emotional abuse
I am done being blamed, I now simply refuse!
I am done being a possession, to be shown
I am done not having an identity, my own
I am done donning avatars to bow and please
I am done with servitude, yes finally, jeez!
I am done not being heard, having a voice
I am done living my life as per your choice
I am done with the morbid illusion of love
I am done; I know now, that I myself am enough!

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
