Relax Momsie, relax
Take a deep breath
Take 2 steps away (from me!)
It’s ok if I fail
I will make it up some way
It’s ok if my dress is not the best
I still feel confident and that’s more important
It’s fine for us not to go on holidays
Take selfies and post pics on FB
I am super chill without a smart phone.
It’s just fine that you did not look great at PTM
That was not what it was meant to be anyways!
It’s fine momsie that I am glowing in darkness
You know that grandfather is dark and bright at the same time !
It’s ok momie that I cannot go to movies, to KFC’s, Dominos and MacD’s
Our occasional Uphaar trip is just fine for me
It’s ok that our home is shabby, it is still a home
That our car is dirty, it’s still a four wheeler
That there are creases on my shirt sometimes
That I reach school late or I get punished
That sometimes someone laughs at me
And I know how to laugh right back.
That you didn’t go to college or nana doesn’t work
That you sometimes says ‘sit’ for ‘shit’ and other wise!
That some people will never like you
and some will never understand you.
That you will never be Aishwarya Rai
and I will never be Aradhya/Taimur or whatever.
Don’t worry, momsie, coz I got selected for Basket Ball
And Raju is giving me his jersey and his shoes
Help me work on my Basket Ball plz
Can we now celebrate with Bisibelebath?!
