I am a woman!

I am a woman!

I am a woman.

The world dictates,

what I should wear,

how long my skirts should be,

And my perfect size in centimeters.

I am a woman.

And the world tells me,

If I speak freely I am a flirt,

If I sleep around I am a slut,

If I don’t agree to what you say,

I am a bitch.

I am a woman.

And the world objectifies me,

For the shiny car they need to sell.

For the booze that needs to clear your head.

For their desire to be kindled I need to dress.

In skimpy, tight clothes that don’t fit.

I am a woman.

And the rules are set,

To be the perfect wife who cooks three meals.

To earn money to compensate the rising needs.

To be a mother, caregiver and a pleasure in bed.

I am a woman.

I take back my power,

To feel an equal,

To be respected because I am no less,

To be paid for my talents not based on my gender instead.

To make my own decision because I am equipped,

with grey matter inside my head.

Poems

Take my hand…

Come take my hand,
Let’s walk to the fringe of the society,
Where stigmas have been stepped over,
Where rules have been bended to fit,
Where the how to’s have been redefined.

Come take my hand,
Let there not be another morning filled with excuses,
For all the things that doesn’t feel right but forced upon us,
That we stay within bounds.

Come take my hand,
Let there not be another night filled with anguish,
That only your soul knows.
But you smile outwards so that you don’t ruffle feathers.

Come take my hand,
Let me lead you to the land of the bold,
Where the lions have walked with their heads held high
Where the warriors have strode towards what felt right.
Where the misfits have not molded themselves to the holes that fit tight.

Come take my hand,
For though the journey is hard and filled with strife,
On your death bed, you will smile!

Faith & Hope


At times of distress,

When life seems like one big mess

Like the view from behind a black shade

Where Everything looks bleak and grey

When getting out of bed seems like a hurculean task

And you feel like heading outside with a clowns mask

Keeping putting one foot before the other

And just tell yourself I’ll get thru this  hour

For everyone, we’ve got only this day

Even when life seems all lovely we will never know how long it is there to stay

The miseries that are at your doorsteps

Are not tattooed onto your life forever

With just a dollop of faith and a grain of hope

Take a deep breath and calmly cope

For When you are on the other side, you will see

How this pain has broken something deeper within thee,

To bring forth light and discard the unnecessary.

So hold on don’t let go…

For another miracle is yet to unfold.

Poems

Thoughts

Do you take your thoughts seriously?

If so I can imagine how your life would be,

riddled with fear and anxiety

life feels like a horror film on eternity

But if you observe very carefully

They are like passing clouds floating endlessly

Dont believe them unnecessarily

For they are not what they seem to be.

Replace them with positivity

whenever it is necessary

Let them float across without touching thee

Being aware of the vicious cycle of negativity

You will see your life turnaround

to a future that is bright and unbound.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poems

Prince Charming

Fairy tales read at bedtime

Told me of a Prince who would complete me in this lifetime

Held on to this dreams and looked out the window,

For the Prince to arrive and take away my sorrow.

Held on to the hope that my Prince would arrive,

And deliver me, from this prison of mine.

Held on to the fantasy that once the Prince enters,

I would be free from my dark tormentor.

My Prince did arrive, I thought I was finally saved

I sighed with relief that I got the love that I craved

Little did I know, that he was looking for the same

Someone to complete him – a dame who would take his name.

Disappointments took me on a quest for the question that still loomed

Why did I still feel incomplete? Am I doomed?

After all the searches the path led me back to me.

There was nothing that I lacked and I was whole and complete.

I was my savior and the answer to my questions in the end,

And my ‘Happily ever after’ began just then.

Poems

Awake?

 

Seas filled with toxic dump,

Forests slayed to make more room,

Carbon spewed through the industrial pump

Making glaciers melt fast, pronouncing doom.

Hatred running rampant with her hair billowed in the breeze

People killed in the name of glory

Nuclear tensions rising with unease

Animals lives too are grim and gory

God are you awake? don’t you see, all that is happening in our planet which makes me weep.

Please wake up God, clear this mess I plead.

In the silence God whispered

I am awake

ARE YOU?
