So I took the road less traveled by-the journey of a Rebel ♥ 


It has been exactly one year when I had decided to leave home. 

I admit it wasn’t an easy thing to do at that point in time but then I’ve had enough of always trying to conform just to appease other people’s whims.

“So,  what about me? ” My inner voice said in retort.

***11:33***

I just took the plunge. I had less resources with me at that moment & was actually scared of what I was about to do. But then I did it. To hell with everything, I just wanted to be free!

Free to decide for myself. Free to express myself . Free to do whatever I’ve always wanted to do. Free to be me! 

So you think I won’t survive, didn’t you? 

The moment I left, it felt like a part of me just died and was reborn to be a stronger version of myself. 

Everything happened so fast. 

From zero to hero

It’s like the universe finally decided to give me my birthright. Opportunities opened up from the moment I decided to let go of my old life. New learnings, new friends and family, a fresh start… I couldn’t ask for more. I strayed from the drama that used to be me and viola!  Here I am now: happy, wiser, and empowered. 

So cheers to the people who used to make my life a mess. Without you I wouldn’t be able to understand my worth. 


I’ve lived my life like a masochist

Hearing my father say,

‘Told you so, told you so!

Why can’t you be like the other girls?’

I said, ‘Oh no, that’s not me

And I don’t think that it’ll ever be’

Thought I belonged to a different tribe
Walking alone, never satisfied, satisfied
Trying to fit in but it wasn’t me
I said, ‘Oh no, I want more
That’s not what I’m looking for’

So I took the road less traveled by
And I barely made it out alive
Through the darkness somehow I survived
Tough love, I knew it from the start
Deep down in the depth
Of my rebel heart

I’ve spent some time as a narcissist
Hearing the others say,
‘Look at you, look at you!
Trying to be so provocative’
I said, ‘Oh yeah, that was me’
All the things I did just to be seen

Outgrown my past and I’ve shed my skin
Letting it go and I’ll start again, start again
Never look back, it’s a waste of time
I said, ‘Oh yeah, this is me
And I’m right here where I wanna be’
I said, ‘Hell yeah, this is me
Right where I’m supposed to be’

So I took the road less traveled by
And I barely made it out alive
Through the darkness somehow I survived
Tough love, I knew it from the start
Deep down in my rebel heart

So I took the road less traveled by
And I barely made it out alive
Through the darkness somehow I survived
Tough love, I knew it from the start
Deep down in the depth

Of my rebel heart
Of my rebel heart
In my rebel heart
