My head nodded a ‘yes’
When my mind blasted a ‘no’ ;
My lips moved a ‘yes’
When my heart leapt for a ‘no’;
I smiled at people
When I wanted to shout at them;
I attended the functions
When all I wanted was some alone time;
End of the day –
I went to bed with a heavy heart
And woke up with unhappiness and negativity;
Pleasing people made me sick
My heart was critical
My mind was frustrated
All this ‘coz I tried making all happy
And I chose myself to be unhappy
I couldnt understand
Why I did it ?
What I gained from it ?
I wonder still –
I’m not a people pleaser today
I havent changed
I am just being me .
