# I am She #

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!
When will she be tolerated as-?
Woman; without her, Man is nothing!

I am She!

Man craves for a wife but not a daughter,
One says honor killing; other burden killing; Inhumane are the ways, Alas!
A withered rose; worn and torn by wild beasts
And by no means, can be restored.

I am She!

To beget a girl baby; in a large
Is a crime; sentenced to death.
How far? She responsible; for a natural process of X & Y chromosomes
To be beaten up brutally!

I am She!

Empowerment of woman says the world
And is mostly a paper statement,
Until the thrust of exploitation of woman is shaken up!
Reforms, social movements could yield no new status for ‘her'

I am She!

Before she could enjoy the fruit of; Eradication of Sati Sahagamana;
It's replaced by modern acid attacks and the like.
Freedom says a voice; putting a thud on her,
With no choice to veil or unveil herself,

I am She!

Which 'ism' would help; improve her status?
Know not? When would people like;
Raja Ram Mohan Roy, William Carey
Would rise up voice; to free woman,

I am She!

Longing to step on upper hung of the ladder of equality.

Accepts; no comment or compliment from unknown ghost
Says no; to any kind of malpractice,
Boycott's any opportunity that craves for exposing.
First the Resolution followed by the Revolution - be from my end.

I am 'She'!

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
