I


I am the circle in the square
The tree in the leaf
I am the smile in the tear
And I am the useful in the heap

The heap of wastes which is thrown away
Away by those who don't care
Care to even look at me stuck
Deep within there

I am skeptical
I am jealous
I am lonely
But I am fearless
Brave enough to say

I lie

And I lie to see that others
Are not bothered to care
Care about the real person
That is I

I say I am good
Good in ways which world doesn't want me to be
Good in ways where people mock
At the very sight of me
I , as a human
Graced by the heaven
Live and let live I within me

A tale of a woman

The peace I search


Of mind and soul


The peace of being alone


Born to be beaten


Crushed at the feet


Dropped out of school


And then sold away with relief


A burden of a daughter


A sister


And a wife


I learn


I live


I learn to live


And live to let others live too


My powers they say


Are of no use


Except of mane if any I produce


Give me a chance


Let me fight too


Let me be free


Free from the wisdoms


Stitched by thee


Some peace of mind


And peace of soul


My body my womb


I can console


I am not born to listen


Their yes or no


I am not bound to sit


When the heads nod and go


I shall not follow


What my mother has been


In laws too


Are not to be rhymed


I can find myself


Amongst the crowd of many


Let me fly too


With my own grown wings
