STARK

You stand stark

Tall, unflinching and defiant

Against a canvas of menstrual red

That heralds the coming of your womanhood

That lures the hyenas and human wolves

That seeks to turn your beauty into shame

You stand stark

Tall, unflinching and defiant

Against a canvas of vermillon red

That swaps maidenhood for matrimonial shackles

That enslaves you in the prison of expectations

That moulds you into a diety of domesticity

You stand stark

Tall, unflinching and defiant

Against a canvas of funeral pyre red

That releases your soul from its body cage

That burns with equal zeal your vices and virtues

That turns your imperfections into memories of perfection

You stand stark

Tall, unflinching and defiant

Since the beginning of time

Your spirit indomitable

Your heart unconquered

A woman always and forever
