You are more

Penned down by Rachana Vaidya at 1:52 AM
You are more than the glorious curve of your hip
or the unevenness of your skin
You are more than the little scar on your nape
or the birthmark at the little end of your back
You are more than the crispy notes you earned
or how few meals you can afford a day
You are more than the fiber that makes your clothes
or the number of pretend-friends you have

You are the thoughts that run through the darkest corners of your mind
and the music that makes you cry on a silent night
You are the kindness you do without a single person to notice
and the frown lines you get when you worry for someone dear
You are the art that takes you time to grasp
and the books that fill your lonely days
You are the wonder that lits up your eyes on those long journeys
and the emotions that spill out of your soulful eyes

You are what you want to be, more than your mistakes, more than your wins.

I loved it. those are not words. they are chords. playing with the reader's mind. imprinting a solid impact.

Loved the flow of it - loved what it conveyed - strong! =)

Reminds me of a quote, as well: "You are not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world!"

Very well said. We need more writings like these :-).

How come you are not writing much anymore? :-(
