Don’t stop the storm anymore

 

 

Here she comes

Unmasked

Unveiled

Shedding all her inhibitions

Bared

Naked

Displaying her scarred face

To the world,

Without any fear to lose anything left

Enough is enough

Enough of being politically correct

All the time

Masking

Hiding

Pretending

Covering

And faking

Enough is enough

Eventually she lets out her rage

Breaking her silence

Shaking her shackles

Emerging out of the shell

As she wants to fly away

Without any restrictions

Without any bondage

She is finally ready to

Taste her freedom

To face the world

With courage

Displaying her scars

Which are her milestones

Of her solo journey towards her freedom

Baring her bruises

Which are reminders that

She won’t be the same again

To tell the world

She is ready to take on her life

Only on her own terms.

She says ‘watch me as I come’

    This poetry stands out from the crowd and culminates with altogether new form of freshness in expressing myriad vivid thoughts in very farceful yet simple manner.
