life- a different way
Birth was given
Warmth was felt
not of the mother,
But of demise
she was loathed
For being a girl
A tender soul
Eliminated from life ,
without a chance
They both were 12,
With smiles aglow,while
He walked away in a crisp uniform
And she swept the floor,
Swept away the hidden tears.
The celebration dynamic
Best day of her life she felt.
Little did she see him coming for her
Stripped, ripped and destroyed
On the bathroom floor.
All applause for him,
‘Just a woman’ they called her.
Her tenacity, he efforts and
Sleepless nights gone unnoticed
He gets acclaimed ,
As she walks away less earned,
55, falling out of love
With the better-half once desired,
Worn out In one corner of the room
With zero dreams left for herself.
Required to attend the rules of the “man”
In the home she toiled to build.
In a world that’s filled with poison,
Hearts fill with fear at first,
Change the world to a better place,where
It’s a boon not a curse.
