woman

I am the daughter of eve ,with the strength to create or destroy the world,but you nasty people
Judge and say me as a simple weak being.
Was born to be beautiful being but you made me suffer my whole life.
 During childhood,I loved playing with dolls  and with friends,
But you wanted me to do the chores so brother can enjoy.
He enjoyed all the pleasures and had all the fun,while I was in the
Hot sun,doing the work like a nun.
I worked like a donkey,but he had the turkey.
As he was the son, and I was none.
He had to read the books and I had the food to cook.
And there came a new man in life ,for whom I was wife.
He earned money and I was honey.
he had the authority and I was in poverty.
He was the ruler and I was the bearer.
All I wanted was the love ,but he gave me the stove.
The  days passed and the seasons changed,but my life hadn’t.
Designation changed from wife to  mother,nursing all the time .
Was split into  two by husband and kids,but the heart always 
Desired something else.
Kids grew and flew to new destinations. 
the heart does crave and yearn for love as it is stupid,as it doesn’t 
have mind to think,and it is  there only to feel.
I want to learn, read ,play and relive those moments which were 
Mine  but were snatched away as I was a girl.
But it is us, who make this world beautiful,peaceful and happy.
We are mothers, daughters, sisters above all we are human beings.
Treat us like fellow humans but not like slaves,then you will see
The more beauty of the world.

    In our Country crores of devotees are there who pray celestial mother with the image of Woman. Mothers are always great in all the ways. Sacrifice of any relation can't compare with the sacrifice of mother in this world. I agree. We are here because mothers are there. Loved always, my friend, bl

    You have a sweet soul and your heart is full of gold. This was a lovely piece of work. So much emotion and hope was dripping off of every word. It was a very nice poetry.

    Such a Heart touch Poem! It is well written and has a lots of mix emotions about what a woman goes through, I am sorry you didnt get a chance to enjoy your childhood, it seems as though your brother got by and you had to face the school of life real early. But keep you head up know that God brought you thru it all, you are alive and still here, be the woman you were meant to be, live, be happay and free. God will take care of you.

    thank you for your comment.but the poem does not depict my life.my parents have raised me very well.the poem just reflects the plight of vast women in this world.my parents treat girls as equal to boys.

    A very bold poem- well written. Women are not the second class citizens. They can be Razia Sultana and Jhansi ki Rani. The chain of exploitation must be broken. To me Heaven is under the feet of my mother. -Mohammad
