I Am The Boss Of My Own! (Poetry)

I am the Boss of my own. #The Woman That I Am

I locked up myself,

my dreams and aspirations,

behind the doors of,

patriarchy and


evils of self-doubts,

and inhibitions,

confined me,

to stay in my,

comfort zone.

So many duties and,


to be fulfilled,

my own priorities,

took a back seat,

I wasn’t connected yet,

with my real self,

pleasing others or,

living up to others’ expectations,

were the certain obligations,

in my small world.

But somewhere,

in the depth

of my heart,

I longed for the freedom,

to take my,

own decisions.

I longed for the dignity,

to keep my,

head held up high .

I longed for the independency,

from all the,

restrictions and boundaries.

I longed for the wings,

to soar above the hills,

beyond the sky.

Some tough days,

shaked my mind and soul,

tried to weaken me,

I tend to lose my sanity,

until one day,

a gloomy awakening light,

hit my soul.

I encountered,

my inner self,

to whom I was,

unaware of.

With huge introspection and


I discovered,

my own beliefs,

values, purpose

and goals.

With courage and full determination,

I rose up once again,

to overcome the shackles,

and hindrances,

which ceased me to move on.

Breaking all the barriers,

and ignoring all the restrictions,

coming my way,

I took the charge,

with full grit and potential,

to never ever give up.

For, I am the boss of my own!

Now, days are gone

when I couldn’t rebel,

restrictions were set on me,

life seemed like a hell.

Now, am prepared

to shun

all the evils

that tend to

diminish my


For, I am the boss of my own!

Now, I have the strength,

and zeal to deal,

with waves of challenges.

Now, I have the power to,

overcome all barriers,

coming my way.

Now, I have the ability to,

triumphant over,

all the grave situations.

For, I am the boss of my own!

Now, I do not want anyone,

to help me,

to support me,

to look after me,

to show sympathy,

or love me.

Now, I am capable enough,

to love, help and look after myself,

to accomplish the mystery of ‘Real me’,

to set the goals and follow the dreams.

Now, I need no appreciation,

or judgement to be passed,

no validation or,

any sort of reward.

For, I am the boss of my own!

Now, I have the willpower,

courage and desire,

to fly high up in the sky,

and set the fire.

Now, I love myself,

accepting all the flaws,

and imperfections.

My eyes brim with an excitement,

as life is now full of joy,

and contentment.

For, I am the boss of my own!
