Kavya ...

Woman's Era

What is a girl
Who has with her only emotions to hurl

Though her childhood she can relish
Her youth and adulthood she will have to replenish

With loads of responsibility
I hope here there is no ambiguity

As it includes every work under the sun
And you know from all this she cannot run

At any age beware from the zombies around
Who can try to lure her though gentle they may sound

Prepare herself to marry a stranger guy
Love marriage or arranged marriage, with him her relationship is tied,

He is then her ultimate god
Parents say, respect him, and for his every decision you have to nod

She one day becomes a proud mother
And spends her major part of life nurturing her kids come any weather

Attend every minute task of her kid
And here no spouse comes for a bid

As mother is the master of all
And yes kids prefer their mom to be always on call

Attend to spouses need
Else he will feel that she no longer pays him any heed

Please her in-laws at the same time
Though difficult make their and her song rhyme

In old age her body gets totally worn out
Even her kids feel her like a smelly rot

There r many more hurdles in her life which I here cannot recite
As only a woman can understand a womans plight

Dont u think every woman during her lifetime goes through some part of this
If not, then surely its a lifetime bliss!

I know all this if done out of love n affection
Does not seem to be a burden

But at some point of life a lady feels to sit back and rest
And get rid of all these life time test

At least for me, I want to be reborn as a boy
Who does not have to go through all these sufferings but only ENJOY!

    Dear Kavya, as a woman I completely agree with your thoughts and feelings. But it is all a part of our life as a woman.in Woman's Era! No doubt at times we long to have been born a boy- but think from the angle of men- they have to face their way in their work places being the bread winner of the family. We can go for work or not - it isn't binding in most cases.
    You have composed a very excellent poem with rhyme and rhythm right from your heart ! (Report) Reply

    So true and realistic, Kavya! At one point or the other in life, every woman feels this! To sit back and relax for some time is a human need! But how often we, women have to forgo it as something unexpected props up! It may be as simple as the arrival of an unexpected guest! Like you, (to be frank) I too long to be.... if there is another birth! enjoyed reading your poem! (Report) Reply
