This one is dedicated to you dad:-
I was up in the air with a smile spread all across the face. Gravity pulled me down and I had landed in the world’s most reliable arms. Daddy’s little toddler was the happiest of all.
I loved running across the streets in your shoes. You held my hand and made me walk in those big ones. Daddy taught his girl to carry the weight with a smile.
I ran my life’s first race and won a gold. You shouted my name and jumped all over. Daddy never missed to make his girl proud of her achievements.
It rained heavily that day and I caught cold. You sang me to sleep and took my care. Daddy’s heart cried the most and he couldn’t sleep that night.
Your shoes have started biting me Daddy. Your shivering hands can’t clap for me anymore. The strong me breaks down seeing you weak and silent. No matter how many chapters life closes, I will always need your shoulders to rest my head and breathe.

I praised my wings to have made a long flight;
Crossing woods, oceans till they became out of sight.
I stopped at a branch to rest for a while.
Lured by comfort,
I forgot that the destination isn’t mine.
Days passed and so did months,
I had no courage to move out in the drying sun.
I began missing the blue skies and the free air.
I soon realized my life wasn’t that, it was up there.
But I had lost faith in my wings
And wished that I get carried away by the blowing wind.
Closed my eyes, took a deep breath and woke up;
I had to trust my wings again before they finally broke up.
Soon I was amongst the heavenly clouds,
Rising higher and higher feeling so proud.
With wings of ambition and a flight of dreams,
Destination isn’t a matter anymore; it’s the journey of self-esteem.

About the book:
“…and you say you know her?” is a poetic represtation of the most common feelings that each girl goes through during different stages of her lifetime.
It’s about that dreamer in the crowd of people who thinks she cannot achieve anything in life.
It’s about that silly little girl with whom reality has played a harder part and made her strong like a rock.
It’s about that delicate angel who makes a difference in the lives connected to her.
It’s about the depth of love that flows with the ocean of her feelings.
It’s about that child that resides in the little corner of her matured body who struggles to mould herself as per what the society expects of her.
She may be a simple woman from the outside but is a thousand pieces of art from the inside. Do you really think you know her?
I will be eagerly waiting for your sincere reviews. 😇
