I am changing

by Sumati Muniandy


I am changing
I value myself more
I don’t want to crack my head thinking over the things I can’t control
I am changing
As I choose to move away from the toxic people
I value peace over confronting people
I save my argument
I am changing
For my own betterment
As I want to please my inner feeling
I can’t please everyone around me
I am changing
I choose to remain silent in front of fools
As they don’t have the brain capacity I have
I am changing
I treasure my freedom
My own ability
My talent
I am changing
As I don’t want to change others
And the onus is not on me
I am changing
I live my life as though there is no tomorrow
As I am responsible to my own happiness
And I move on.
