A Journey from Obsequious To Assertive.

A silent spectator was she

Cause this all she chose to be

A mere observer and bystander she was

She felt this is how she could win applause

Her hunger for approval and acceptance was so strong

No wonder she held back even when people were wrong

Till one day the dam of patience wore down

Her mask of forbearance was replaced by a frown

She thought that was the end of the world

Till it dawned on her that her true self had finally unfurled

The burden of pleasing all and sundry gave way

Self Assurance and authenticity instead came to stay

She felt a weight vanish off her back; sensed an incredible lightness of being

She saw life anew, which a coloured perception prevented her from seeing

We bend backwards, twist and turn to a point where we’re lost

It is wise to adapt and appease but never at our own cost
