aaji, i once asked my granny,
do you think this dress is too good (expensive)?
"what is more valuable than ourselves?
nothing material is too good."
words of wisdom from my grandmom.
how i wish i could talk to her today.
instead of hiding my real self like
a thief stealing from life,
i'd walk proud and strong,
not being ashamed to be me.
i'd always be good enough.
