    It takes a lot of strength and courage to walk that path, especially shunning old norms. Good for you. I like your concrete form too. Neat!

    Quite powerful to be able to claim your identity as something YOU decide, define, feel and live. In a word, empowerment. Kudo’s to you!

    Labels serve us no purpose. To renounce what you list is to free yourself. Thanks for stopping by the Sunday 160.

      Thank you Brian..
      About crabs.. we have this little joke saying it all..
      A train full of crabs was halted on its way. All of those had escaped in sometime excepting the Indian crabs. They had kept pulling each other down by the leg.. ouchh!!

    I like the way that you placed one word line upon line. This added to the poem’s depth. It made it felt like every item you placed there became heavier and heavier until the poet freed herself. Very interesting.

    Good one! It made me think of the movie “Into the Wild”, he also renounces society and finds his identity. I am in love with the idea of renouncing society, maybe someday πŸ™‚

      lolsss… great!!
      Thank heavens you liked the idea.. I have almost.. now live on my own terms n conditions. Tough but worthwhile!
      After I changed my name, become atheist and left my dad’s name (including dropping the surname legally); things have turned around…

      The major part of the society still takes pride in lifting stones on me.. but then.. that’s all they can do.. They live in the cavemen era. They are bound to hunt, beautiful things catch their fancy- winkie!
      Hugs xoxox

    Personally, I think we should change our name at least once a year. It freshens the spirit and opens up endless possibilities.

      If only the legality was easy.. I am comfortable with the name mom chose for me.. only I couldn’t use that while she was still around.. hope she is watching over..
      Thank you Dear xox
