They said I squandered,
They said I messed up & lost,
They said I wasted my life,
that I have never realized it’s cost.
They said my dreams weren’t worth a dime,
That I was a lost star that failed to shine,
Just another lash of wave on a feeble stone
Just another queen living in the shadows of her throne!
They said I was wrong ,
Weaving rhymes never bought me bread,
But the soul I stitched with those words ,
Kept my sanity from being dead .
They said I couldn’t tell right from wrong,
They said I could have been more strong,
They ridiculed me and told me to put up a fight,
but for me it wasn’t passion, if it was not right.
They said you will never forget.
It’s a curse, for memories are forever etched.
They said life is gonna be bitter ahead.
Yet today, I look back without regrets.
They kept saying – adding nothing new,
They kept disapproving – coz they had nothing better to do,
But I learnt to look ahead and move on,
The person who once cared is gone!
