She wore curiosity,
played out of her comfort zone and broke norms.
She was authentic
and confident of what she was saying
People for whom anything new is bad,
challenged and mocked her for things she said.
Buts she was a woman of her own rules.
She didn’t strive to assimilate to the norms
When you are running, why do I need to run in the middle?
Why can’t you peel off the prejudices which are deeply planted
on your thoughts like a second skin?

every time when you are expressing your views.
But just be confident of what you are saying.
