The lashes tickle the air
And the vision embraces the burden of monotony
Waking up is just another..another purposeless chore in this world for me.
Bound and an already acquired possession of society I slog
Slog to keep up the expectations..
Of this so called modern society..
I walk.. walk conscious and abrupt..
Scared for life because of me being me..
I am child..an innocent soul
Hurt and sore
But no one to hear me mourn
Killed in the womb and disowned by the universe I am
Though its my age to play with the Barbies
Survival is the only thing,I say, I can
Love is no where to give me a tan
Full of anxiety and helplessness
For the society I am just another vulnerable ham..
I am a teenager..
Blossoming and spreading my wings.
Love is the evil that struck me, while I stared mingling
Blinded by his colours I took pain in my stride
The scars.. the blood ..the hurt
Was just a part of my Romeo’s ride
So used to this the soul in me became a masochist
And when i ended all of it
My love just threw acid at me and again i ended up as a roadside shit..
Now I am married
The massive weight of the wedding bands
Sits upon my tender hands
Ringed around in cobweb of worldly expectations
I sit in the corner hiding my unexpressed citations
Hit by my man
Insufficient dowry is the justified link claims the clan
Heart throbbed i feel helpless in my own home
My soul has been slaughtered and left for the misery’s throne
When i am dead and gone..my terrified hands will lie
Still ringed with the ordeals i was mastered by..
And all my aspirations in the world that i made
Will just end in the dark shade
But guess who I am
who am I?
I am a female
