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. Sweet sixteen 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, than deserved 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.
