Carpe Diem


Free-spirited, I live in the moment and rejoice;
Try taming me, swear it isn’t a wise choice;
No surrounding is good enough to settle me at one place;
I am a wanderer who travels at a varying pace.
Come rain, come sunshine I'll still make hay;
Tagging along with interesting ones who come my way;
Picking up things along the way, but attachments noway.

Call me impulsive, spoilt brat sans any emotions;
Yet will demonstrate a fiery battle to all oppressions;
Socially connected yet prefer heading on solo vacations.
I chase things that give me everlasting joy every time;
Mess with me and I’ll turn rabble-rouser in no time.
A bad-ass and can get meaner than all the boys;
Do attract many, only a few impressed by my dignity and poise;
Free-spirited, I live in the moment and rejoice.

Not being treated equal and harassed is indeed a bad feeling;
Hypocrisy may not allow it to be acknowledged, impacting my well-being;
Initially, I may struggle but eventually will break the glass ceiling.
Failed relationships can’t trample my spirit down;
I’ll re-start in pursuit of compassion rather than frown.
My passion is ignited by fire and will spread at a rapid pace;
No surrounding is good enough to settle me at one place.
Try taming me, swear it isn’t a wise choice;
Free-spirited, I live in the moment and rejoice.
