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
