I am not the spectacles on my face I am the spectacular light that leads my foot forward in the darkest days I am not the colour of my skin I am the rainbow on a rainy day that lifts up a child's drooping chin I am not the pimples on my cheeks I am the dimple that wipes the waves of tears to soothe you in your weeping weeks I am not the dark scars on my body I am the success behind every healed wound that unfolds an untold story I am not the cracks on my heels I am the courage that walks me through the desert of dreary dreams. I am not the bounce of my rounded breasts I am the bravery beneath the bones of a single woman. I am not the aridness of my frizzle hair I am the exuberance of my distinctive flair I am not the weakness in my nerves I am the willpower that inspires a million lives. I am not the name on my in-law's gate I am the fame born out of my mother's sweat I am neither the wealth nor the riches I possess I am the wellness of my family and fortitude of my friends. I am not just the Sindoor on my forehead I am the signature on every milestone that I cross while marching ahead I am not a burden on the man's back I am the responsibility that holds the nation's flag. I am ME I am MY THOUGHTS I am MY AIM I am MY MAGNANIMITY I am MY CHARISMA I am MY EFFICACY I am not what you think Because.... I THINK BIG!!!
