Hey Giver, Time to give yourself!

To the giver in you
To all the times you let your self-esteem sit back
To all the times you said;
‘It’s them before me’ & saved them from any attack
And lastly,
To all the times you thought you were at fault
Oh darling, sadly;
None understand kindness comes by default.

So stop there!
Take a deep breath;
For they will take you for a weak head;
So gulp that strong sip of pride;
Because you got nothing to hide.

Take the tide of thoughts
& channelize them into self-care;
For its only you for you
Even when you are a part of a whole big crew.

Set your boundaries;
Say no if you are not comfortable
For they will anyway give you labels.
Get over that unworthy, disrespectful relationship;
And give your self-esteem a good grip.

Dance your worries away;
Drink up that wine
Because you got to shine;
For there’s nothing more prime
Than being happy & loving yourself!

If, a funny word!

If, a word we use very often;
To express the regret of a situation
To repent on any given condition
But my dear,
Pause for a minute;
For life is too timid
To blame it on the if’s and but’s
When you got your gut to trust.

No matter how old you are
It’s true that age is just a number.
For losing is nothing bad
But not trying & giving in
Would just be a reason for if’s to add.
So stop and take a deep breath;
For you don’t know how far/near is the dance of death;
So shift, control & reset.

Be proud of your decision
Embrace the change;
For taking risks would only bring growth & range.
Let your emotions speak
Take the leap of faith
Just don’t let there be any hate.
Stand tall for you are one of a kind
& only you can get your peace of mind.

Marry the love of your life
Take that solo trip you always desired
Quit that job; from the one, you always wanted to be fired
And follow your passion & then get hired.
Let them if’s and but’s be bygone
For If you don’t follow your mind & heart;
Are you even living your life or
A life someone has bought?
