Her Success

All accolades, she stood confident and tall
People around her all praises in the hall

Compliments brought tears to her eyes
She was hardly confident, she would rise

She thought herself to be an ugly ducking
For all her life she had been struggling

Trying to prove herself, coming up to mark
Before taking any decision she had to ask

She never herself knew what she wanted
Following instructions on the dotted

Life according to others she altered
What she wanted no one bothered

The years rolled by, the realization dawned
She had lived for others, herself ignored

Tired of being told everytime what to do
She wanted to have her own point of view

She saw world with her own kaleidoscope
Managed to come out of the shadow
