Don't dim your Light (Part 1)
Today I got a task,
It was all about self talk,
I wondered about it for some time,
Then I decided to pen it down,
My journey with myself through life,
How I evolved into a Star,
Ready to shine bright and share its light.
As a child I was told,
You are not beautiful at all,
You should say what people want to listen,
That's how you try to fit in,
As a girl you should be timid,
Coz that's how you will be appreciated,
You have got dark skin,
So act humble if you want to fit in,
To be accepted with respect,
you have to be and act innocent,
The light of your soul should be dim,
That's how I was told to fit in..
I told myself all those nasty things,
Coz all I wanted was a little acceptance,
I hid all my talents from the world,
And showed myself as someone I was not,
I learned to remain calm and cool,
For everyone I became an ideal girl,
And I did it all, for a little love....
To be contd....
