I am a woman


I am a woman,
I am sensuous,
I am different from you physically and emotionally,
But I am no different from you otherwise.

I dare to raise my voice against criminality,
You know how to hold me back,
I am stubborn and wont give up,
You will get me killed,
What are you?

I wear something I like,
Your mind runs wild,
You put a dagger in me,
You throw acid on me,
You rape me,
You find different ways to harass, subjugate and kill me.
And fulfill your thirst.

I am not a weaker sex,
I am a mother, a daughter, a wife just like your mother,
She is a woman too.
How am I different from her?
You treat your mother that way?

I have borne enough of your atrocities,
I will not sit back and cry.
I am not ashamed to tell the world what you did to me.
You, a criminal, must be ashamed, must be killed ruthlessly,
I, address this, to that section of male society, who are not humans but demons.

My plea's to the authorities are a waste.
I will be told differently everytime,
The actual, is totally forgotten.
I am long dead even before the verdict is pronounced.
Its time, I take MY VENGEANCE against you.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
