Being Myself

The tigress cannot help being wild

The cactus cannot help being prickly

The sun cannot help being hot

And I cannot help being Aishwariya

Even in my sleep, I dream of cats

Even in my sadness, I love my self

I swim in the rivers of my sadness

I climb through the mountains of my pain

I travel for years and years

And on the other side

Is Aishwariya, beautiful Aishwariya

Her happy self dancing in the moonbeams.
