Change, Accept, Adapt And Dance To Their Tune? Never!

Poem: Change, accept, adapt and dance to their tune? To all misbehaviour and disrespect be immune? But why should she?

She had given more than they could take.

Still, she had to see enough heart-break.

Was this drama really meant for her sake?

She was genuine and could never be fake.

Change, accept and adapt and dance to their tune?

To all misbehaviour and disrespect be immune?

Continue picking and joining pieces strewn?

Allow to be blown and sifted like a sand-dune?

Never miss real stories from India's women.

She witnessed the ferocious and vociferous fight—

Found herself discussing and debating day and night.

The three-in-one judge, advocate and convict’s might—

Her collective efforts tried to converge and throw light.

Forever distrust and dilemma and experiencing enough pain;

After another year, it was that day of the year again!

But, today she felt fresh like a rainbow after the rain!

A brand new love and a loving Valentine was her gain!

Her Valentine said, “My love! My dear! You’ll be fine!”

Our eternal true love will grow and mature like old wine.

She had committed to a life-long affair and chosen to shine!

She had grabbed self-love and peace and was her own Valentine!

She had her cake and ate it too- picking favourite colour and flavour!

Doing what she liked and liking what she did— her labour to savour!

Pleasing self was her 24X7 project and sincere constant endeavour!

Discovering self-love and her sanity, she did herself  a huge favour.
