I am done


I am done being who you want me to be

I am done seeing what you want me to see

I am done doing what you want me to do

I am done with regrets so I no longer rue!


I am done agreeing to everything you say

I am done following, doing things your way

I am done wearing what you approve of

I am done with instructions, so please stop!


I am done keeping quiet, done with silence

I am done cloaking my hurt as resilience

I am done being prey to emotional abuse

I am done being blamed, I now simply refuse!


I am done being a possession, to be shown

I am done not having an identity, my own

I am done donning avatars to bow and please

I am done with servitude, yes finally, jeez!


I am done not being heard, having a voice

I am done living my life as per your choice

I am done with the morbid illusion of love

I am done, I know now, that I myself am enough!

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
