The Greatest Love of All


Why am I expected to fit in with the society?

Why should I edit myself to confirm to the given standards?

Why should I look the part, everywhere?square-peg-round-hole

Like it or not, but I am a square peg in a round hole .

I cannot and will not change to just fit in the mould!

I have the courage to live a life true to myself and not the life other people expect of me.

I have flaws and I’m not perfect either. Despite that I love myself which I know is the greatest love of all.

  1. Hear Hear Shilpa!


    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll.
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    ~ William Ernest Henley

    Kudos to your spirit!

  2. Society is accommodative of everyone, even though it tries its best to homogenise people. But it does test our patience and determination, which in many cases adds fuel to the fire of rebels πŸ™‚

    • Yes, because, being true to yourself means that you need to change your mind which is still bound to the societal rules and regulations and that isnt an easy task! Thank you Danny, glad you liked this piece! πŸ™‚

  3. Stepping out from the existing structure of what is normally expected from a person is one thing. Setting a new path for onself is another thing. Beyond a point we should stop listening to others and start listening to ourselves more πŸ™‚

  4. yea..
    I refuse to conform to norms.. refuse to fit into any mold given to me!
    I love being me!

    beautiful Shilpa!! It’s like I’m saying these words proudly! πŸ™‚

  5. One has to love oneself first before loving anybody else. If we can love our self unconditionally we would be able to love others too in the same way, and that is truly the greatest love of all.
