In the space, I have carved for myself,

I am contented and much at peace,

Do not though worry, I shall not take yours,

Control your temper and reign your caprice.


My chord may be different with contrasting notes,

But we can create a symphony with your intonation,

Harmony can’t be as elusive as made out to be,

For ‘I’ and ‘you’ are the part of one creation.


I assure you, I am not in a contest with you,

But have no doubt about my pertinence,

As I have no hesitation in accepting yours,

Clear your mind of prejudices and any ambivalence.


You are the Adam and I am your Eve,

I do not seek a day to celebrate being a ‘SHE’,

For, the glory lies not in asserting one’s identity,

But in complementing the other and still being free!
