WE - the indian girls


we want support
we want equality
we want opportunity.

65 years of independence.
but for half humanity-
men folk only.

we girls are still oppresed.
we still feel inferior.
we continue to live, but in fear.

India's patriarchal society,
man is the ruler.
woman is treated like worker.

we are made to feel low,
we are underestimated,
we are hated.

we have been prohibited.
to grow & go forward
our world has been limited.

we are called 'parayi'
since our birth.
this scenario breaks my heart.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is not true for all parts of india.
but in backward regions (which consist more than half of country) women dont get equal treatment.

    i am very glad you clarified the countrywide situation(s) in you poet's note. the message is well-stated. i'm not sure i would call it a poem....except for the way you broke up the lines....but i'll accept it.
    there is one spelling error....maybe a typo....oppresed needs another s. i hope you are not one of the oppressed. if you are, good luck with that problem. otherwise, good luck with helping those that are oppressed. thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Sad to know of your feelings of inequality. I hope things will change with the spread of education.
    True, this is not true for all parts of india.. Hope it is also true that this is not true for all, even in the backward regions of India. (Report) Reply

    Fathers be good to your daughters, daughters will love like you do.Girls become lovers, who turn into mothers, so mothers be good to your daughters too.
    A woman is the full circle.within her is the power to create, nurture and transform...well written Jenie. (Report) Reply

    It is a shame that inequality of the sexes still exists in the world. As a poet you can write about it and get your poems published for people to read. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
