Chitrangada likes to express herself by writing fiction and poetry. Her writing reflects her mood and is inspired by the beauty of nature.

Having some, Me Time
Having some, Me Time | Source

Have some, Me Time—

She wanted to be alone,

Alone with herself,

With a quiet silence,

Nothing wrong with her,


Sometimes, you need that,

To have your own space,

To introspect, to reflect,

To disengage, to de stress,


At times, you need your own company,

Just to sit leisurely, doing nothing,

To unwind, to unplug,

To ease off, to loosen up,



Stop the speculation,

Stop being judgemental,

Stop the analysis,

Stop the disapproval,



There is nothing wrong with her,

Her life, or her relationships,

Her attitude, or her behaviour,

Leave her alone and at peace,



Let her take a break,

Let her exist, and not just coexist,

Let her believe, that she matters,

Let her have her 'Me Time.'

Enjoy some ‘Me Time’
Enjoy some ‘Me Time’ | Source

      "Me time" is something I cherish. Whenever I can get a moment to just sit and do nothing, I feel like I have been given a wonderful gift. Your poem beautifully claims there is nothing wrong with that. I really enjoyed reading it.

      Very nice message through your wonderful lines. Chitra, I appreciate you for coming up with this appropriate and needy message. One should have his own time definitely, a peaceful meditating time looking into his inner mind and soul. It's very important if one has to assess himself and develop. It is also a good break for observing nature and the wonders of celestial powers.

      What a lovely poem with such an important message! We all need to be alone at times- to think, to meditate, to just unwind and relax. We all need to get off the carousel of life at times and your poem expresses this need so well, Chitrangada. Thanks for sharing!
