There are saplings that struggle in the world they pop up and then there are few that don’t have the privilege to breathe out..



They asked me reasons

I gave them many.

Then alas! They remarked-

“Excuses are no bravery.”


Oh! How foolish were

My insane thoughts,

To believe they would faith

The gravity life had brought.


The more I explained,

The many eyebrows got raised.

So, I stopped the venture

Of putting my stance.


They took me as shallow

Fearing deep waters,

However, my scales

Were of different measures.


Their courage was to

Loudly confront others

And live life boldly

As self considers.


Mine was different-

Living by others’ expectations.

For that I maybe shallow

In exerting own perceptions.


If courage is to travel unknown waters,

I had walked dreams unknown to me,

Brave are those who fight for the known;

How wasn’t fighting my way amidst

those strangest deals is a brave me?
