Ear phones plugged, as I walked fast on the pavement to home,
In a fraction of seconds, my lovely heels took my breath away.
As I fell on my knees, my world tumbling in front of everyone,
Like a spring I stood up, dusted my pants and walked chin up.
Was not ashamed but way back in school,
Was embarrassed as I fell on the ground carrying a heavy school bag.
In front of my classmates, that too boys!
Din’t even look around to see who was hanging around.
That night, I feared those monkeys might laugh wild,
And humiliate me the next day.
But I acted cool as if somebody else fell down,
Bravo for my courage and acting skills.
What a wonderful throwback,
That put a smile on my face.
