What a perfect world it would be, if people minded their own business and let you get on with yours. These are the many things, I would do then…..
I would colour my hair purple and get a punk-cut.
Wear a mini skirt, leather jacket and boots,
and roam the streets, whenever I felt like it.
Dance on the bar without worrying about raised eyebrows.
Get drunk at the New Year’s bash ,
and tell everyone, how I really felt about them.
Walk into a temple with shoes on, god doesn’t say, no footwear allowed inside. It’s the so-called guardians of the temples, who mind the extra work, cleaning after the devotees. So many times, for the want of taking off my shoes, I have been deprived of an audience with god.
Hold my friend’s hand and walk on the roads without inviting curious glances. Without people snickering behind our backs, Is she gay?
Say NO to irritating relative’s, unreasonable demands
Speak my mind without thinking about the consequences
Do what I felt like, when I felt like, always
Hibernate for three months at a hill station
Eat only when hungry and not worry about, my weight,
Live my life and not worry about,
my character, my reputation, and my duties.
Curse and throw things around when angry
Howl at the top of my voice,
when upset or grieving.
Burst into a guffaw, in public,
when something funny happens
Love deeply, unrestrictedly
Stay in a relationship only until it lasts.
Walk out when love goes out of it.
Fall in love again and again,
till I find my soul-mate.
Be in love with more than one person,
at the same time, and say it openly.
Profess my undying love to my soul-mate,
and walk off into the sunset with him/her.
Stay away from negative people,
even when they are closely related to me.
Show my displeasure,
Not conform to the rules
Pull out my tongue at moral policing
Thumbs down to toxic people
Light candles in the morning
Eat breakfast at night
Do as I please
Speak my mind.
Follow my heart.
Live in the moment
