Aarti અપડેટ પોસ્ટ કરી English કવિતા
9 માસ પહેલા

It laughed.. Loudly.. Sarcastically..
My own reflection in the mirror..
“Oh why? ” I questioned. 
It laughed harder. 
“You silly lady.  ”
It said, 
“Aren’t you tired? ” 
“Tired of what? ” I asked.. 
“Of the fake smile you give me,  
Every morning. 
Of the fake happiness you show, 
To the people you call your own. ” 
“Of the fake life you live. ” 
“Oh stop it!! ” I screamed. 
“Aren’t you tired of it? 
Wearing mask everyday. 
On name of duty, 
On name of pleasing your family? ”
It continued… 
“Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?  
For killing your dreams? 
For dying from inside everyday? ” 
It laughed sarcastically.  
“Take the mask off lady. 
See the person behind it.
 She wants happiness. 
She wants freedom.  
She wants to fly.. ” 
“But..  I can’t. I am not supposed to.. ” 
I said. 
“Coward..  You’re coward. 
You deserve the cage you’re living in” 
It laughed harder, harsh, cruel. 
“STOP IT! ” I screamed 
And I broke the mirror. 
And I turned away from myself.. 
With the same mask.. 
With the same fake smile..
