Sometimes we care too much about what the world thinks and lose sight of what is really important to us.

As I look into the mirror

fear crept in silently

I questioned myself

"What if he despises my outfit?"

"What if she detests my hairstyle?"

"What if they disagree with my decision?"

Each day,

paranoia fills my soul

helpless is all I am.

 

Yesterday,

Doubts were feeding my mind, again

out of the blue,

I saw an oppressed yet agitated man

standing right beside me

He clutched my arm tight,

and he said,

"Who cares what he thinks?"

"Nobody cares what she sees!"

"It's your own decision!"

Surprise swept me off my feet.

"Who are you?"

I asked, flummoxed.

"You."

He answered, convinced.

 

A gigantic revelation shone.

All this while,

when I was contemplating what people think of me,

I lost happiness, I chased away felicity

Why should I torment myself to such great lengths

Just to 'please' the judgmental people around me?

I found myself speechless 

when presented with this enigma.

 

Today,

I looked into the mirror,

I saw an imperfect human

but with a smile, I said

"Who cares?"
