'I am She! ' Poem by Queeny Gona


A garden locked up; blossoming vines
A spring enclosed, scarlet ribbon lips
A sealed fountain, twin fawns of a gazelle
Simply a beautiful rose; lined colorfully as butterfly.
I am She!

A bundle of joy,
An innocent babe longing for a lullaby
A perfume of love spreading fragrance
Wishing to explore my days of survival among foxes
I am She!

Decades, centuries passed by
Yet Woman, without her man, is nothing.
Will she be tolerated as
Woman: without her, Man is nothing?
I am She!
Man craves for wife but not a daughter;
one says honor killing, and other burden killing: Inhumane are the ways, Alas!
A withered rose, worn and torn by wild beasts
Left beyond restoration!
To beget a girl baby, by and large
A crime; sentenced to death.
How far SHE responsible; for a natural process of XX chromosomes?
To be beaten up brutally!
I am She!

Enjoyed not fully, the fruit of Eradication of Sati Sahagamana
Yet is replaced by modern acid attacks and the like.
Freedom says a voice; putting a thud on her.
Leaving her no choice to veil or unveil herself
Empowerment of woman says the world!
At most-a paper statement!
Until the thrust of exploitation of woman is shook up!
Reforms, social movements could yield no new status for ‘HER'
I am She!

Which 'ism' would help; improve her status?
Know not? The crisis for people like:
Raja Ram Mohan Roy, William Carey
Is so high to raise voice to free woman!
Longing to step on upper hung of the ladder of equality.
Accept: no comment/compliment from unknown ghost
Say no: to any kind of malpractice
Boycott any opportunity that craves for exposing.
First the Resolution followed by the Revolution-be from my end.

I am 'She'!
