Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.

Barbie? No, Thanks, I Am A Firework!

Poem: That I had indeed let myself become a Barbie girl. With a plastic life. Letting others do what they wished with me as if I had no choice!

My friend would listen a lot,

To the song titled “Barbie”,

And I began to love it, too.

The words,

I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic!

Would linger on and on in my mind!

What I hadn’t realized that time was

That I had indeed let myself become a Barbie girl

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

With a plastic life.

Letting others do what they wished with me,

As if I had no choice!

I remained that Barbie girl

For very long years,

Whenever I did try to let the others know

What hurts me, what pricks me and what poisons me,

They would either turn a blind eye,

Or make me feel that something was wrong

With my thinking, my psychology!

However, when the thunderbolt stuck,

I suddenly remembered that I did indeed

Have a choice to say “no” and move on!

Now, I am no longer that “Barbie girl”

And I don’t wish to even remember that song!

I have become “Katy Parry”

Who roars and roars and roars.

To silence the months of agony.

I now sing,

“I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire!

And yes, I believe in myself

And know that I have fireworks within me

Which will rise into a moon

Making me shine!
