Within Withheld

When heaven welcomed Nelson Mandela, everybody was curious to know that how a human can be so right in his doings. So HE asked that how did you do it son?

Mandela replied...

I never let anything within withheld
Be it access to education, post high school or school stress
I learnt early that school violence education was necessary,
Well I respected the social responsibility

I never let anything within withheld
Health, body image and mood swings came hand-in-hand
I also had to respect social anxiety & mental health stigmas
which followed them

I never let anything within withheld
I stood up against violence,
for violence was a gaming addiction myself
people asked how it affects?
I said social media & tech addiction were like violent events

I never let anything within withheld
I have been a victim of abuse in relationships
bullying, school bullying but cyber bullying much ahead
I have risen above home abuse
with just fashion like Coco Chanel

I never let anything within withheld
I raised my voice against the wrong
Be it peer pressure or parent to teen stress
I never went physical
as Mahatma Gandhi said.

I never let anything within withheld
sports hazing & steroids use in high schools were like potholes
near the milestones of success
time management was like music in sports and competition
And I tried to bring gender equality totryout eligibility
sports favoritism was the epitome of glory
where me with my emotions began the story

I lived my life without hist & haste but with twists & tastes
But I never let anything within withheld
