Our Forever Love

By Snigdha Agrawal

NAYSAYERS

Give me a sheet of ripstop nylon paper
I'll fashion it into a kite
with our names stickered
Fly it from rooftops
Announcing to the world
our forever love

I know frowns of disapproval
will appear
Minds building up a fever
"How dare she!
  How brazen of her!
  How shameless!
  She has broken all norms
  Flaunting the name of her lover
  Get her...get her…locked up forever
  She should abide by what her parents
  choose for her!"

Says the naysayers.

Do I care?
None whatsoever!
I'm a free spirit
Cannot be coerced
Will never bend
Shout out to them
"Clean out the antiquity
  from your mind
  create space for
  new age light
  Of course, you will choose to remain blind!"
