Alone on the top

I climb the stairs one by one
Losing my people as I come
Closer to the top
Don’t know what have I become
Is it alright?

At night I look out of my window to see
A peaceful street ever-so-lonely
Much less than my life I bet
Tricked by dreams and debts.

The streetlight suddenly shimmers and I look again outside
A few people just passed by, out of my sight
It’s about to rain and before the night starts getting wet
I quickly grab my phone and switch on the internet.

I position the camera to capture the sky
But since too tired and sick of posting stuff online
So I just capture it and print it and write this story on it’s behind

That when I leave it and someone gets it,
They have my words on their mind.
On their lips, in their hearts|
A little moment I’ll define.
This moment of theirs particularly to me I’ll confine.

I’ll tell them it’s okay to be alone
Well at least for sometime
And that life is huge and people affluent
Surely some good company you’ll find!

Don’t just adjust for anything just cause everything else seems undefined
Define it,
Give it words
Style It
Call the birds
Tell them to tell the world
At the break of dawn
About it.

That’s about it. I guess I am done for tonight.

I am a girl. And that has made all the difference.

I have longed to see the light of the night

To see the stars, not from my terrace but from a friend’s

Have longed to own a bike of my own and go out alone

But they say they care, and so they cage me!

Well, I am sorry but that does enrage me!

 

If they see me out with other guys at an odd hour,

They suddenly possess their J.Ds and start judging from afar.

Please, people, get a life of your own

Stop judging and let me have a life of my own!

I am done listening to what to do and where not to go.

I am done being judged on what I wore…

 

Saturday night has always been a beautiful dream,

which cannot come true for me.

Unless I marry of course,

To another cage.

Better let me die happy if that’s the case

Or let me live in peace and stop the chase

 

Please bring down the cameras that I feel around me

Please shut those eyes, that I feel around me

Eyes, waiting to judge me for having my Saturday night

Eyes waiting to suck all the peace out of my life

 

I have long forgotten how to dance in front of a crowd, am I shy or made to feel ashamed?

I could do it when I was a child

But now I am not a kid anymore, I am a girl.

And that has made all the difference.
