Being in your own shoes

It’s only in the cinema
That the hero has them all
Sense of humour, good looks
fighting abilities…

He’s a poet, a singer
A dancer, athlete, artist
All rolled in to one.

Imitating the reel
Could land you in grief
Or feeling inadequate
Impersonation of another
 Not your true self
Could leave you feeling
Tired, drained and exhausted..

Having to pose funny
Witty or courageous
When  not  feeling  
Any such thing  inside
Can be a strain
Yes, being somebody else
Can be a real pain!

Best is when you feel natural
Spontaneous and free
Content and happy

Happy in your own shoes!


  1. Comfortable in your skin.. Throw all inhibitions in a dust bin :)

  2. Thank you Roohi for sharing your thoughts!

  3. Beautifully written. And I agree. We will be free only if we remain ourselves. Else, it would be a constant pain.

  4. Thank you Ranjini & Sunaina for your feedback!
