Let Me Be Myself!

A beautiful poem about change and evolving!

Let Me Be Myself!

I am not wax

That can be moulded with little heat

I am not even the metal

That changes to few beats

I am the stone.. ‘YOU’ cannot change me

I change with time, slowly, naturally

If you try to speed up my change

You will end up breaking me

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

Even great sculptors that change

The simple stone into great art

Have chipped bits off it

To make it what they think is perfect

Similarly, a change in me means

You chip off bits of me

Taking away something that is a part of me

To make me what you want me to be

I may become a piece of art

But then I have lost something that was ‘ME’
