**Closed Doors**


JOURNEY OF MY SOUL INTO THE MIND OF A GIRL:
'Enjoyed the pampering of parents
but then, came my sibling
grabbing my love from all.
Poor child! The doors are closed for Love.

I started blooming in my studies
but, perceived as a burden!
So studies ended up with schooling
Poor child! The doors are closed for Education.

Diverted my mind into the field of weaving
but then, their was a tie up between my job and home making.
conceived as a time consuming.
Poor child! The doors are closed for Self reliance.

Had been into the world of pampering,
UNLIKE THE PAST, showered the love for both.
Brought up both as equals.
The doors are closed for PARTIALITY.'

    Yes, there was a time when all doors were closed before a girl child. But thank God! Times have changed and the preference and partiality between sexes are dwindling! ! A good write, Queeny! ! (Report) Reply

    The feelings of a girl through out her life is brought out clearly. In this male dominated society, how girls are being treated could been seen from the poem. (Report) Reply
