No more boxes to check!

I’m measuring my life, I fear

In terms of boxes that appear

To have been created by people around me

I have been checking them off diligently..

Educational qualifications, career goals, material possessions

Vacations, hobbies, leisure activities- in true confession

Are guided by the narrow boxes designed

By the society keeping averages in mind

But if I keep measuring my success

By boxes checked off, how would I truly progress

In life, when copying others is all I seem to do

I am not being original or authentic, it’s true..


Let me forget all boxes and bucket lists for now

And clear some space in my head to allow

Free movement of ideas that are authentic to me

Let my successes (and failures) be rooted in originality
