As I commence my life in my forties 

A lot has suddenly changed within me 

I am a lot calmer now 

And have learned to sail dignified at my own pace 

Also,  I feel so rooted and grounded today 

Looking at the bird’s eye view what I desire and what I don’t 

Have become more vocal in expressing my views conclusively  

And not bearing it all and sulking 

Not that I was not earlier 

But I feared hurting the ones I love

And hence I sacrificed, which they never realized

That kindhearted woman  is now gone forever 

Of course, I am being judged for it 

But I now care a damn 

Let them criticize, let them form opinions like they always did 

I no more care, I am so done

I am now itching to let go off 

A lot of baggage that I have carried all through my life 

Sitting quietly by the shore for the past week 

I have let all that flow away deep into the ocean with the waves 

I feel so light now, so full of peace 

I have finally accepted myself the way I am 

Not trying to get into the mold

Cast to perfection for me by someone else 

This acceptance came too late though 

But I am so grateful it did 

I love my imperfect flawed self 

The one full of smiles and passion for life 

If you want to love me 

Love me the way I am 

Otherwise, I am fine 

Making the most of my left time 

My mantra for life is clear now 

I feel I now have no time to waste

I shall only do what I love and what gives me joy

Everyone else, they have to accept my ‘NO’ with a pinch of salt!
