Have you seen yourselves being treated badly?
And then wonderfully?
By the same person, different days?
I wonder sometimes if life is fair, if values exist anymore!
If love really has no boundaries at all!
The other day, it was a sunny day…I was relishing the world around.
I was lazy too, didn’t feel like combing my hair or wearing funky shoes.
I dressed up in lazy clothes, they weren’t ragged
They were tidy, but were cheap and did not make me broke
I was comfortable, I smiled
I felt I looked pretty, pretty like a bird flying high up in the sky.
I wandered off to the market; smiling and contended.
It was a sunny day, a beautiful one.
But…many eyes looked down at me,
I wondered why, and then I realized
It was my cover, not by behaviour.
A shopkeeper or two decided that I won’t be able to pay
Pay for the things that I wanted to buy.
I laughed at them, they all looked like fools to me
For, they were the same folks who cried out a few days back in glee,
“Madam, please come to the shop, you might like several things you see”.
I am not rich and I am not poor
I am a free bird, my wealth is my happiness, within and around.
Do not form an opinion so quick, do not be so judgemental.
Do not judge someone by the clothes they wear
Clothes make you look good, honestly, but that is not all,
There is a world beyond the cosmetic look one wears.
No matter how ugly a person might look
Take time to know them, then form an opinion
For you are only human, and even God might be mistaken at times!
