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
