Being yourself

Being yourself

Hey congratulations
You completed your 12th boards
But why are you looking so bored?
Just get up and start searching for "rishtaas "
You know you have perfect marks to sell u in matrimonial market
Beta, get married it's better than being caught up by sex racket
I know you are nervous thinking of first night and already started missing your those favourite tights
Wait tights! Leave them
Because you are going to be fat at all
Mom soon your baby will call
Ohh wake up its too late
Your inner voice yapping in your ear
"Pati ka breakfast " "Bacche ki school bus"
O dear, you really don't have time to cheer
Lunch laundry and kitchen you really seems like half baked chicken
Now accept that it's totally your fault that day I'm not ready to marry
Why you haven't told
I know your mom look at you as matured eighteen
But standing for self is not sin
Society think you are burden
But please put them behind that dumb and deaf curtain
Just take a deep breath and tell me
Have u ever afraid of driving when u have licence
Then why are you so afraid of people
When u have licence of being yourself
