I am not the girl who I was a year ago

I am not the girl who I was a year ago

I was the girl who was shy ,

But this world made me fearless…

I was the girl who never used a bad word,

But this world made me bad-ass…

I was the girl who always first looked at the heart of the people,

But this world made me the one with beautiful face …

I was the girl whose dream was to make my parents proud of me,

But this world made me the one who has to first survive in this race …

I was the girl who never went alone outside the home,

But this world made me brave and taught me lessons…

I was the girl who used to cry a lot ,

But this world made me strong and helped me fight the situations…

I was the girl who took decisions by listening to heart,

But this world made me to take practical decisions …

I was the girl who used to play with dolls,

But this world made me to play with my own emotions …

I am not the girl who I was a year ago
